Violations of North Surrey's Code of Conduct will be addressed by pre-planned, fair progressive discipline which is intended to be preventative and restorative and taking into account student individuality, maturity and development.  These may include some or all of the following:

  • Teacher/Student conferences
  • Parent contact by teachers
  • Classroom consequences
  • Referral to counsellor
  • Community service
  • Mediation
  • Restorative Justice
  • Referral to Vice-Principal
  • Detentions
  • Removal of school privileges
  • Suspension



Cellular phones, iPods, etc. are to be kept turned off and out of sight during instructional time unless otherwise instructed by their teacher.  Unauthorized use disrupts your learning, the learning of others and the flow of the lesson.  If students bring electronic devices to school they do so at their own risk. Please note that the school will not accept responsibility if they are lost or stolen.  If these devices are observed during class time, they may be confiscated.
