In accordance with the stated philosophy of the school, which emphasizes deep respect for the human dignity and uniqueness of every individual, each student will be considerate of the rights of others in all interactions.
All students are expected to cooperate with the Catholic spirit and policies of the school, which are designed to foster mature development and personal responsibility. This requires courtesy in all personal relationships, promptness in fulfilling obligations, concern for the environment, and many other factors, which the students' sense of appropriateness will indicate to them.
Students at St. Brigid School are expected to behave in a way that helps make their school conducive to learning and a safe, happy environment to grow into the fullness of life. The staff will model and instill a Christ-like ideal to help students succeed both in and outside of school.
Respect yourself respect other people and respect other people's property. Remember this code is in effect on and off campus as well as on church property, at all school sponsored activities and functions too.
Examples of unacceptable behavior include, but are not limited to:
Infractions of the rules are handled by the teacher who is present at the time with penalties that may include a conference with the student, a note sent home, a call home, Ioss of privileges, loss of recess or detention.
When infractions are serious or repetitive, a student may be sent to the principal who will investigate the incident, give the student a chance to explain what happened, determine a follow up action, which will include notifying parents. Actions will vary according to the seriousness of the misbehavior. A conference with the teacher and parents may be warranted to discuss the best methods of working with the child to achieve success.
We, at all times, reserve the right to depart from these guidelines, when it would be in the best interest of the student or other students to do so. In addition, the Principal reserves the right to determine the appropriateness of an action if any doubt arises.
The administration of St. Brigid School reserves the right to discipline its students for off campus behavior that is not in line with behavior expectations of its students during the course of the school day.
