Inappropriate Use of Snow

Inappropriate Use of Snow

In the interest of safety, we continue to share with the students that the throwing and/or kicking of snow/slush on school property is not acceptable behaviour. The reason for this is as follows: At times, we have to clean up stones and broken glass on the playground area. There is also salt and sand used on the asphalt for preventative measures. When snow is scooped up from the ground for the purpose of being thrown our is kicked, the snow could contain other items, which if it were to hit another student, could cause serious injury to that student. We will also outline appropriate use of snow with the children.

The following procedure using progressive discipline will be followed when a student does not comply with the snowball/slush rule: A warning, followed by a one-day supervised exclusion from class on the subsequent infraction. If there is a repeat of this behaviour, it will be necessary to assess a suspension from school. When a student’s action causes a serious problem for the safety of other students, such a serious response as a suspension is necessary.

Your cooperation in this matter is greatly appreciated.
