Code of Conduct

The learning community of Mount Pleasant values and respects the rights of all individuals (as outlined in the BC Human Rights Code) and does not discriminate based on race, colour, ancestry, place of origin, religion, marital status, family status, physical or mental disability, sex or sexual orientation.
The students, Principal, staff and parents of Mount Pleasant Elementary have agreed upon the following steps to correct behaviours that interfere with learning or maintaining a safe, caring and orderly school environment:


Minor misbehaviors will be addressed as they occur by teaching and/or support staff working directly with the student.  Misbehavior will be clarified and appropriate behaviours identified. Logical consequences, designed to encourage commitment to more positive behaviour, may be applied. Classroom teachers will be informed to provide continuity and track frequency.


More serious or repetitive behaviours may result in consequences such as: time out, in-school-suspension, community service, and/or a written apology. Students may be asked to fill out a Three C’s sheet. This tool provides opportunity for self reflection and commitment to more positive behaviour.  Three C’s sheets will be sent home for parent review, signature and a request to review our code of conduct with your child.


Serious misbehaviours may be addressed through parent discussions with the Principal, teacher, district staff and student.  They may result in restricted recess and/or lunch privileges and/or suspension and/or expulsion from school.  In some cases it may be necessary to contact resources beyond the school such as police or other community agencies.
Consequences will take into consideration each child’s developmental level, age, maturity and special needs, if any.   Any disciplinary decision may be appealed.  Contact the office for information on the appeal process and time line.
Whether at school, at school related activities or activities impacting on the school environment
