Leaves may be secured by presenting a note from your parent or legal guardian. Notes from brothers, sisters, relatives, etc. are NOT VALID as these people have no legal responsibility for you.

During class time, leaves will be granted for exceptional reasons - doctor's appointment, drivers license appointment, etc. - only. At lunch time, leave will be granted for whatever reasons parents wish to stipulate.

In all cases, the student leaving must sign the sheet in the Office and leave the note before he/she may leave. He/she must also sign in upon return. Students leaving for home early must bring a note and sign out before they leave.
Students who live in town and are not transported by bus may go home at lunch time; however, they are required to sign out in the Office before they leave and to sign in when they return.

Parents who pick up children during the day are asked to sign them out in the Office before they leave. This applies to children of ALL grades.

ONLY Grade 9-12 Students may be given the permission for the year to go uptown during lunch hour. Permission can be given by logging on to the Parent Portal and reviewing the Uptown Leave Form. If Permission has not been granted online, students will not be allowed to leave the school without a call or note. NO OTHER GRADES ARE ALLOWED TO GO UPTOWN DURING THE SCHOOL DAY UNLESS GOING WITH THEIR CLASSROOM.

Shevchenko School Electronic Policy


BLSD ICT Use Agreement/Fair notice policy

When Shevchenko students use school and personal electronic devices during the school day or after school events, they must follow the Shevchenko School electronic policy and the BLSD ICT Use Agreement/Fair notice policy.  Parents and their child/children will have reviewed the BLSD ICT Use Agreement/Fair notice policy on the parent portal in the beginning of the school year and signed that it has been reviewed.  Home room teachers review the policy with students at the beginning of the school year.  The policy is available on the Shevchenko school website.

Shevchenko School Electronic Policy

K to 6 students are not permitted to bring personal electronic equipment to school. For Grade 7 to 12 students who bring personal electronic devices to the school, such as cellphones, they may only be used on the school grounds during school breaks, spares, and after school.  Personal electronic device use is prohibited in the classrooms, bathrooms, and school offices.  During the instructional day (8:50am - 3:35pm), personal electronic devices must remain out of sight and in silent mode. At no time during the school day is a student allowed to record, share, or post personal information about themselves or others on any online environment (last name, address, phone number, pictures, audios, videos, passwords, or school name, etc.).

For the first offense, the personal device will be taken to the office for the remainder of the day and may be picked up by the student before exiting the school at the end of the day. Parents/legal guardians will be notified of the incident. 

For the second offense, the personal device will be taken to the office and for the next five school days the choice is either the personal device is to be left at the front office each morning for the entire school day or left at home. Parents/legal guardians will be notified of the incident. 

For the third offense, the administration will set up a meeting with the student and their parents/legal guardians to decide on the next steps to follow for the remainder of the school year.
