Parking Lot Routineshttp://alg.scdsb.on.ca/about-us/news/school-news/245Parking Lot Routines<p>​</p><p style="text-align:center;">Parking Lot Reminder</p><p>This is a reminder that, due to safety concerns, <strong>we will be closing the parking lot at 8:48 am</strong> (First Bell) every day to ensure that all students can get to class safely and on time.  Vehicles will not be able to park or leave parking spaces from 8:30 until the Kiss and Ride has cleared<strong>. </strong> We would like to remind everyone that we are a walking school and are not able to safely handle all students receiving a ride through our Kiss and Ride system.  Alternatively, adjacent streets are available to drop off students so that they can walk to school from there.  Webster, Branson, Ferguson, and Coleman are possible alternative drop off locations.  Swan is also available for students to cross at the lights.  <strong>Please do not drop off students on Innisfil Beach Road or Dawson Crescent as the traffic and lack of crossing lights pose a significant hazard to the safety of students.</strong>  We have included a map for easy reference for alternative drop off locations.  Thank you for your continued support towards the safety of our students.</p><p>A reminder that when picking up students at night, the parking lot will remain open until 3:10 or when full.  At this point, the parking lot will be closed and vehicles will not be permitted to move until 3:20, after all students have gotten to their vehicles.  At 3:20 the parking lot will be re-opened and vehicles will again be allowed to leave or enter.</p>
Alcona Glen Mobile Device Policyhttp://alg.scdsb.on.ca/about-us/news/school-news/228Alcona Glen Mobile Device Policy<p>​</p><p>Dear Parents/Guardians </p><p>Starting in November, the Ontario Government is making changes to cell phone policies in classrooms to improve student learning.  Attached is the link to the parents' guide to the Ontario Code of Conduct. <a href="http://www.edu.gov.on.ca/eng/safeschools/code.html">http://www.edu.gov.on.ca/eng/safeschools/code.html</a></p><p><strong>Standards of Behaviour</strong><br> <strong>Respect, civility and responsible citizenship</strong><br> All school members must:</p><ul style="list-style-type:disc;"><li>respect the need of others to work in an environment that is conducive to learning and teaching, including by ensuring that cellphones and other personal mobile devices are only used during instructional time for educational purposes (as directed by an educator), for health and medical purposes and/or to support special education needs</li></ul><p>These rules are in place to support student learning and safety. Some students have engaged in using video, games and/or photos at inappropriate times and places such as in class, on the yard or in the washroom. We have had many issues with students texting during class, accessing websites/materials that are not appropriate and using phones to disrupt. </p><p>Students will be permitted 5 minutes to check their phones for messages at the beginning of each nutrition break.  If students are unable to check at this time, no additional time will be given, they must wait until the next nutrition break or the end of the day.  Parents must be aware that students will be unable to respond to any messages outside of these periods.  Of course, there are times when emergencies arise outside of these times and a call is necessary. Parents must call the office in these circumstances as students will not be permitted to respond on their mobile devices.</p><p>When students arrive at school, the phones are to be turned off and put away, even on the yard. This will allow more face to face time for students and promote healthier relationships for all. These expectations are being put into place in order to ensure that we are protecting the learning environment for all students. </p><p><strong>The following are the consequences that will be enforced: </strong></p><ul><li>First Occurrence – the device will be removed from the student and sent to the office for storage.  The student will have a discussion to review the Acceptable Use Policy and guest wireless access, and a record of the infraction will be kept on file in the office.  The device will be returned to the student.<br><br> </li><li>Second Occurrence – the device will be removed from the student and sent to the office for storage.  The device will be returned when a discussion has occurred with the student and a parent/guardian to review the Acceptable Use Policy and guest wireless access, noting access may be denied.  A record of the infraction will be kept in the office.<br><br> </li><li>Third Occurrence – the guest wireless access for that student will be denied and having personal electronic devices at school will be suspended for a designated period of time.  A record of the occurrence will be maintained in the office.<br><br> <br><br>Beyond these, individual decisions will be made as to whether the phone will be permitted back at school at all and/or if a suspension is necessary due to opposition to authority and/or conduct injurious to the moral tone/well-being of others. <br><br>Finally, the school is not responsible in any way for lost, broken, damaged or stolen phones as they are not a necessity at school and if a child and parent decide to send it they are agreeing to this policy. <br><br>We thank you for your cooperation, support and working with your child to determine what is best for them in developing responsible and healthy habits.</li></ul>
