Printable version


Students and their parents are asked to review the Rosemere High School agenda to ensure a clear understanding of our rules, procedures, policies and expectations. This process is essential as we strive to improve communication with the home and provide for the safety and security of our school community.   Students are expected to have their Agenda with them every day and it is reserved for planning and communication.   They are encouraged to get involved and participate in school life, be it athletics, the arts, or the many clubs and activities that exist at RHS.

NEWS FOR PARENTS

Important information is posted on our website at www.swlauriersb.qc.ca/schools/rhs , such as upcoming events (guest speakers, drama productions, dances, Carnival, field trips, etc.) and other topical material concerning life at RHS.

HOME AND SCHOOL COMMUNICATION

We strongly encourage parent-teacher communication. Please use the Agenda, send an e-mail or alternatively, telephone the school to arrange an appointment with individual teachers, guidance personnel or administration. During the year, you may receive a letter or e-mail of concern. Please communicate with your child’s teacher/s immediately. This type of communication may indicate a serious problem is occurring.

EARLY DISMISSALS
All students, regardless of age, are required to sign out at the general office when they have to leave school prior to 2:15 pm. To be excused during the day, a student must present a note to the general office signed by a parent or the parent could call the school at 450-621-5900. The following information is required:

  • the date

  • the exact time of the required dismissal

  • the reason for the early dismissal

HOMEWORK POLICY
It is the student’s responsibility to keep up with any missed work due to absence. Homework includes not only written assignments, but both study and review. Homework is an important part of the learning process and students are required to:

  • prepare ahead for a classroom discussion by reading and researching at home

  • improve skills introduced in class through appropriate guided practice

  • review material and prepare for tests.

All homework should be listed in the student’s Agenda. Students are responsible for completing work by the assigned due date.

Students who wish to do well should apply themselves conscientiously and consistently. Students are expected to do 1-2 hours of homework nightly depending on grade level.

PASS PROGRAM:  Planning Ahead for Student Success

This program is designed to help teach students to become more independent and organized. It consists of:

  • teaching consistent homework and study skills

  • note-taking strategies

  • time management

  • planning tools (e.g. agenda, mapping)  & organization

  • evaluation preparation

  • relaxation techniques

Students are referred to this program by Student Services, Administration, or their teachers. Parents who feel that this may help their child are encouraged to contact their level administrator.

LATENESS POLICY FOR ALL ASSIGNMENTS
Due dates are assigned for all in-class assignments and homework and students are expected to complete their work in the allotted time. Under exceptional circumstances, a student may require additional time to complete the work, which may be granted at the discretion of the teacher. The student must meet the teacher, with evidence of work completed and a suggested alternate due date. Following that, failure to complete the assignment on time will result in the student receiving a grade of zero on that assignment. Teachers will communicate with parents and administration when a student is at risk of receiving a zero on an assignment.

COURSE OUTLINES

Evaluation procedures, as well as general objectives and teaching materials to be used, will be provided to students and parents by the subject teachers on Curriculum Night.

E-LEARN:
LEARN is an on-line resource for tutorials, information and courses offered by the government of Quebec. Logins and passwords are available from the grade level administrator.

SCHOOL CLOSURES- INCLEMENT WEATHER

The Sir Wilfrid Laurier School Board (SWLSB) covers a large territory; Laval, Laurentides and Lanaudière. The weather conditions are very different from one region to another making school closures a complex task with many factors to take into consideration. The School Board consults with transportation companies, other school boards and Transport Québec in order to come to a recommendation to the Director General.

SWLSB students are transported by different bus companies across our large territory. Please note that we rarely do board wide closures. Often only sectorial board closures are recommended.

The best way to get the most accurate and reliable information is to consult the homepage of the SWLSB website at www.swlauriersb.qc.ca  , our Facebook page www.facebook.com/swlsb  or to call the Administrative Centre line at 450 621-5600 or 1 866-621-5600. Although we inform the various radio and television networks, please note that we have no control over the message that is announced.
