School Policies



Attendance Policy

It is the mission of Nak’al Bun Elementary School to achieve high levels of learning for all students by promoting regular attendance.

Excellent attendance is necessary for academic continuity, and to help students develop social responsibility in preparation for their future.

Students who are not in their classrooms by 8:30 bell are considered late and report to the office. Late are noted on report cards.

A child that has not been accounted for at the beginning of the day will receive a phone call home to determine a reason for the student’s absenteeism. Parents/guardians can assist the school by phoning the school and notifying the school as to the status of a student’s non-attendance.

For your child’s safety, and both you and the school know where your child is at all time, students remain on the school property during the day unless they have been signed out by a parent or guardian.

Attendance will be closely monitored, and all precautions will be taken to assure student are in school every day if healthy. Chronic unexplained absenteeism will result in further investigation including outside agency help if necessary.

Health Policy

Due to COVID 19, students must be health checked by their parents or guardians prior to coming to school. The Health Check form will be included in the Welcome Back package. Any students that come to school unwell or become unwell in school will be placed in an isolation room, and will need to be picked up within 30 minutes of a phone call from the school. All provincial Health and Safety protocols will be followed at all times in the interest of safety of everyone.

Electronic Devices

Electronics must remain at home this year due to COVID Health and Safety guidelines. Students must not use personal cell phones, iPad, iPods or other electronic devices during school hours. Missing electronics are not the responsibility of the school at any time. If a student is using any electronic device on school property, the device will be taken from the student immediately and it is the responsibility of the parents to pick up the device.


All clothing and other items found in the school are places in a “Lost and Found” box located in the main hall. Students may retrieve the lost articles at recess, noon or after school. Items unclaimed after a reasonable period of time will be given to a charitable or clothing organization. It is advisable to mark all articles with your child’s name. This procedure would assist us greatly in returning lost articles to the rightful owner.


Staff provide supervision before school and during morning and lunch recesses. Teachers assume building supervision at 8:30 am. Please time your child’s arrival at school between 7:45 am and 8:35 am each day unless a special request as been made by a teacher for early morning assistance or tutoring. Students arriving prior to 7:45am will not be allowed entry to the school and will be the responsibility of the family caregiver.

During lunch hour paid noon-hour supervisors and school administration supervise the students.

Supervision after school is provided until the last bus leaves at 3:30 pm. Parents are encouraged to have their children go directly home after school.


Students and their parents are expected to support a learning environment where attire is appropriate and is not offensive to others. Articles of clothing which promote alcohol, drugs, inappropriate language and images, or discrimination of any form are not acceptable. School administration will determine if students’ dress is appropriate. Some examples for dress expectations are as follows:

  • Shirts cannot be seeing thru.
  • No thin (spaghetti straps) straps for tops.
  • Appropriate neckline must be worn.
  • Clothing must cover the midriff.
  • Waistbands of pants must be at the waist level.
  • Undergarments are not to be seen
  • Hats and caps must be removed in the school.




These rules are applicable to every setting in the school. Specific behaviours relating to these rules should be taught in the specific setting where they are expected.
