The Nootka Elementary School Code of Conduct has been developed over the period of several years with input from our whole school community — staff, parents and students. Our Code of Conduct is updated to include relevant language and to meet the needs of our school community. It complies with BC Ministry Of Education guidelines and the BC Human Rights Code and has been approved by the Vancouver Board Of Education. It applies to all Nootka staff, parents, guardians and students.

—— and return them when they’re due.
