Tips and guidelines for home-school communication
To enhance communication between families and schools, Elk Island Public Schools (EIPS) has recently developed a Communication Protocol for Schools document to provide a framework for communication between the school and our families. The purpose of this document is to guide, manage, and improve home-school communication by offering a standard format, structure, and sequence for regular, ongoing communication.
The document is a useful tool that outlines how schools within EIPS use a variety of communication formats, such as face-to-face meetings, email, Synrevoice, and social media. It also provides a process for parents or guardians to use if they need to bring forward a question or concern. We encourage families to review the document so they know what to expect and what we expect of families.
As communication changes, this document may also evolve. Bec Facey Community High School will work to keep parents informed as any processes evolve and change.
The full EIPS Communication Protocol for Schools document is available by visiting http://www.eips.ca/parents.

BFH Fitness Centre Fundraiser
Drive For Your Students
On Saturday, March 7th, Bev Facey and Sherwood BuickGMC teamed up to raise money for the new fitness centre. We would like to thank Sherwood BuickGMC and to the community for making this day a success.
The picture on the left indicates monies raised to date for the Fitness Centre.
Advanced Placement at Bev Facey
All classes start immediately at 8:35 a.m. and students are to be in class before the bell rings. Students who are late to class, regardless of reason, disrupt the learning environment. Consequences for being late will be assigned by the classroom teacher until the student has accumulated a cumulative total of ten lates. At the tenth late, and every fourth late after that, consequences will be assigned by administration. The consequences for late referrals are: assignment of study halls, in-school suspension, out of school suspension, and course withdrawal.
Students who are more than 30 minutes late to class will be marked absent. When students are on the school grounds after classes have begun, they must proceed to the office to check in.
