Technology Use Policy

At Georges Vanier, we continue to promote positive digital citizenship within our classrooms.  Digital citizenship is the ability to use technology in an appropriate, productive and responsible way. Students may have personal electronic devices at school, with parent and teacher permission; however, they are expected to follow the expectations below:

  • Students are responsible for keeping their device safe. The school is not responsible for lost, damaged or stolen devices.
  • Students are not permitted to use electronic devices at recess or lunch.
  • Cyberbullying or inappropriate messages should be reported immediately.
  • Students should not take photos or videos of others or post information about others without permission.
  • When accessing the internet or social media apps, students should follow the school district internet usage policy including not accessing inappropriate material and not posting personal or identifying information.
  • Use of a personal device at school is optional, at parent discretion. Bringing a personal electronic device to school is never mandatory.

PAC will be selling treats at recess time on Monday for $2.00 each in the undercover area.  Please send a toonie with your child to school, if you like.

Students are invited to wear appropriate costumes to school on Wednesday for Halloween. Many teachers have communicated with parents about when to wear costumes.  We ask that costumes be not too scary, no mask, no blood, and no weapon replicas.  We want everyone to feel comfortable and have fun!

We are also celebrating Diwali this week.  There is a pizza lunch for students on Thursday, whole school assembly on Friday @ 9:00 a.m. and staff / parent luncheon 11:45 a.m. on Friday.  Everyone is welcome to join us and dress for this special occasion.

On Thursday, Nov. 8th we will honour Remembrance Day at our school wide assembly. Students who are part of Guides, Scouts, Cadets or other such groups, are invited to come dressed in uniform.  Any parents, grandparents or family members who served as peace keepers are welcomed and will be honoured.  Please see Mr. Dekerf at the office for more details.

 

Thanks to students and families who donate Toonies for Terry.  Georges Vanier school made a donation of $393.25 to the B.C. Cancer Foundation.  Thanks for your generosity.
