School Policies, Regulations, and Sanctions

The school expects that all students and their families will affirm and agree with

the basic Christian values

essential to our Faith Tradition

as found in this Handbook,

which they are required to read

and study thoroughly before and while attending Notre Dame. 

Sections

1 / Academics

Notre Dame is on a semester system. Marks are cumulative from September until January for Semester 1, and from February to June for Semester 2.

2 / Attendance

Student attendance in school is mandatory and directly linked to academic success. It is also recognized that poor attendance, which includes tardiness, adversely affects the academic success of other students as well.

Whenever a student is absent from school, the parent/guardian must provide in writing specific details. 

3 / IT at Notre Dame

Notre Dame is proud of its ongoing commitment to educational technology. 

For most academic subjects, a Web-enabled device with a dedicated keyboard is essential to study. Students are expected to come to school every day with their own laptop and charger. These and other personal devices can be connected to school WiFi through the dedicated NDRS Student network. 

4 / General School Info

Lockers. Lost and Found. School Texts. School Equipment. Weight-Room. Juggler Field. Off-Limits (Out-of-Bounds). Vehicles. Traffic Safety: Drop-Off and Pick-Up. Visitors.

5 / Student Conduct

Students are expected to 

  • behave in a responsible manner that promotes their active learning and that of others; 

  • demonstrate respect for themselves, for others, and their property; 

  • indicate a tolerance for different views, customs, cultures, genders, values, and abilities; 

  • ensure safety for themselves and others; 

  • develop a sense of community and pride in Notre Dame and its environment.

6 / Uniform

Students in uniform represent their school; as such, we hope all Jugglers take pride in wearing their uniform well. Ensuring consistency in the area of dress code is one way ND strives to model a commitment to excellence. 

A spirit of Christ-like charity, respect for authority, and mutual cooperation are essential elements of the learning environment at Notre Dame Regional Secondary. Students are expected to act with courtesy and respect toward one another and toward all members of the staff. They must take seriously their obligation to develop lifetime habits of self-control and concern for the well-being of others. Home and school will work together to help students to learn and live the qualities of responsible behaviour and the elements of good citizenship.
