Students must use the buddy system when we have free time. No one should be off on their own. Each small group must have at least one phone with Ms. J’s phone number in case of emergency. (604-716-7344)
Students must watch the time and make sure they return to the set meeting point on time. If you are going to be late you must text or call Ms. J / Ms. Bryson / Ms. Henderson and tell her why and when she can expect you back.
Must have a teacher supervising when swimming.
If any rule is broken by a student, they will be sent home at their parents’ expense and dealt with by the administration at school. If it is a serious issue, all dance teams will be cancelled for the rest of the year and future dance team trips are in jeopardy.
I ______________________ have read and discussed the rules with my parents / guardians. I understand all the rules and agree to abide by them. My parents are aware of the monetary and disciplinary consequences of my breaking the rules.
