One of the essential elements for success
in school is attendance. By implementing
measures that will assist or encourage students to attend regularly, we will be
enhancing their opportunity for success.
Daily activities that occur in the classroom are a vital component of
the learning process.
Anglophone East School District Attendance Policy

As is the case in all schools, we at
Harrison Trimble High School have general rules and regulations to promote an
orderly atmosphere, a climate that promotes learning and growth. Each student must recognize that the school’s
authority extends beyond the building to the school grounds, to the buses and
the bus stops, and to school-sponsored events.
Some of the more common rules are as
A. Students are to follow the instruction of
any teacher in the classroom, cafeteria, corridors, bus stops, etc.
B. Students are to be punctual and attend all
classes, except when excused for a legitimate reason, e.g., illness, death in
C. Excuses for absences are to be given to
the homeroom teacher immediately upon returning to school.
D. If a student becomes ill and he/she
deems it necessary to leave the school, the student must inform the subject
teacher and sign out at the main office.
The student may not be permitted to leave the building unless the home
E. Smoking, profanity and fighting are
wishing to place announcements, posters, etc., anywhere in the school must have
the approval of the administration.
Every effort will be made to enforce
these rules in a fair and consistent manner taking into account the
circumstances of each case.The normal penalties imposed are noon
or after-school detention or suspension.
Normally, we will place a student on suspension only after he or she has
demonstrated an unwillingness to change certain behaviour; however, the
following are infractions that the school considers serious and may result in
immediate suspensions to a maximum of five days:
Bullying or harassing another
Insubordination - willful disobedience
D. Gang-related activity
E. Possession of a weapon
F. Possession or consumption of drugs,
alcohol or other prohibited substances at
school or school related activities.
Students suspended from the school are
not permitted to participate on athletic teams or other school-sponsored
organizations, during the dates of the suspension.Finally, the staff has the authority
and responsibility to take reasonable disciplinary action in situations not
specifically listed above.We count on the co-operation of the
students of Harrison
School and together, we will make the school a
safe and pleasant place in which to work.
