Hampstead School is committed to your children’s health and safety. As such, we will be following and enforcing EMSB, local, provincial and federal health guidelines. We will communicate specific guidelines at the beginning of the year and periodically, as and when they change.
We do not have the facilities at school to accommodate children who are ill. If your child is not well, you are asked to please keep them at home until better. Whenever a child becomes ill or injured, the family will be advised as soon as possible. Arrangements will be made either to send the student home or to a hospital, if necessary. If parents cannot be reached, the decision to send the child to the hospital will be made by the school. The cost of the ambulance must be assumed by the parent. Parents must take over the care of their child as soon as possible. We require an emergency contact number in case no one is available at home.
Students must never open any of the school doors to visitors. Visitors are to come by the front door where the school secretary will let them in.
At the sound of the entrance, recess and lunch bells, students must line up and be ready to enter the building in a calm and quiet manner.
Shouting at any time or running, (except during the gym period) is prohibited in the school building. Movement from class to class must be done in an orderly manner and quickly.
Winter Play - For safety reasons throwing snowballs is not permitted. Consequences will follow.
Students registered in the Lunch Program must follow all rules which are clearly communicated to them at the beginning of the year. Failure to follow the rules will result in a suspension from the Lunch Program and parents will be responsible for making alternative arrangements for the student’s lunch hour.
