Fighting

FIGHTING
 
Students are subject to suspension or expulsion from school for a physical assault upon another pupil, a teacher, or any other employee of the Board of Education. This liability includes threats of violence directed toward another member of the school community. Students who commit such acts of violence run the risk of criminal charges being brought against them. They and/or their parents could be sued in a court of law by the victim of an assault. Any student involved in a fight will face a minimum five (5) day suspension, and the incident will be referred to the police. If any staff member is hurt while attempting to stop a fight, depending on the circumstances involved, a more serious penalty will be imposed.
