outside before 8:45 a.m.

Attendance
Regular attendance at school is one of the keys to a student’s success.
Please ensure that your child is in school each and every day. Should
your child be absent from school, please call the school office.
If attendance issues develop, the following procedures will be followed:
• The parent/guardian will be contacted by the student’s teacher.
• If the absences persist, a formal letter will be sent home informing
     the parent/guardian about the number of absences and the need to
     improve the attendance rate.
• If an improvement in attendance does not occur, a second formal
     letter will be issued and sent home. This letter will highlight the
     steps/support the school will take to improve the student’s
     attendance.
• If there is no improvement in attendance after attempts to contact
     the home, the service of the Winnipeg School Division’s Attendance
     Officer,    will be further used to support the child’s regular
     attendance at school.

After a prolonged absence you may be asked for a doctor’s note to
indicate the severity of your child’s illness and the expected date of
return.
Handbook Prairie Rose School 2020 - 2021 - NET

Students who arrive late, after 9:01 a.m. or 1:01 p.m., must call the
school when they are at their Cohort door and a staff member will meet
them.

Safe Arrival System

SafeArrival is an absence management system that improves student
safety and makes it easy for you to let the school know about your
child’s absence. You are asked to report your child’s absence in
advance whenever possible using one of these convenient methods:
SchoolMessenger app, Web and Mobile Web go.schoolmessenger.ca

Vehicle Pick Up & Drop Off Of Students

For the safety of all children, we ask that if you drop off or pick your
child up by vehicle that they use the designated crosswalks.

Cohorts are groups of students that will stay in the same part of the
building and have recesses together. Cohorts have been designed to
limit contact and reduce the amount of people everyone is exposed to.

We have 4 cohorts. As shared in our Return to School Plan. They will
each be assigned to doors, washrooms and zones at recess and lunch.
Each class will eat lunch in their own rooms.

Please ensure your child is dropped off and picked up at the correct
door. Please use caution when dropping off or picking up your students.
Priority is the safety of our students.

            Rooms                   Doors

                           EMERGENCIES

 Safety & Emergency Procedures
The Winnipeg School Division and Prairie Rose School believe the
safety and security of students and staff are first priorities. While
schools cannot prevent crisis situations they can be prepared to
respond quickly, efficiently, and appropriately to ensure the safety of
students and staff members when situations occur.

Throughout the school year, the students and staff of Prairie Rose
School will be practicing parts of the Crisis Response Plan. Below is a
list of the three procedures that will be practiced with a brief description.

 Fire Drills
The students and staff will practice the fire evacuation procedure with
ten fire drills throughout the school year.

 Lockdown/Hold and Secure
All students and staff will rehearse a lockdown or lockout of the building
three times per year. A reminder may be posted in the newsletter
before the first of these practices, but not all practices will be
announced.

In a Lockdown all students, teachers, and guests are locked in their
classrooms and remain quiet until the “all clear” is given. A lockdown
occurs when it is deemed appropriate and necessary to ensure the
safety of all students and staff in the building by keeping them inside
the school in a secured, safe environment.

A Hold and Secure occurs when a response is necessary to secure the
school to prevent unauthorized entry to the school building. Students
and staff in the building may be permitted limited movement, depending
on the circumstances of the incident.
Winnipeg School Division                                    Page 17

 Evacuations
A school evacuation occurs when it is deemed appropriate and
necessary to ensure the safety of all students and staff by leaving
the building. Parents will be notified before we have a school
evacuation practice that will include more details and dates. In an
actual, or practice, evacuation, students will be taken to
Garden Grove School at 2340 Burrows Avenue. 204-633-6477.

                 SPECIAL HEALTH CARE NEEDS

Please notify your child’s classroom teacher, resource teacher or the
office if your child has any health care concerns or allergies. Health
Care Plans are required for students who bring medication,
Epi-Pens, Inhalers, etc.

•   Administering Medication During School Hours

In accordance with the Winnipeg School Division Policy JHCD, no
medication of any kind is to be in the student’s possession at any
time. Should it be required that the medication be administered to a
student at school, a written health care plan will be developed and
reviewed by the public health nurse, appropriate school staff, along
with the parent/guardian and then signed. Prescribed medication
from a physician must be in its original labeled container and will be
stored in a locked cabinet.
Page 18

•   Life Threatening Allergies/Nut Policy

Students with severe allergies are initially identified by parents/
guardians through the school registration form. Students that have life
threatening allergies require a health care plan. The school must be
provided with any Epi-Pens or medications that are required in the
event of an emergency. They must be clearly labeled with the child’s
prescription and doctor’s instructions.
Due to students with life threatening allergies, we ask that you do
not send nut products to school.

The Lunch Program will create an updated list of Food Allergies and
restricted foods each year and publish it in the newsletter and post it at
the Lunch Program.

•   Student Accidents & Injuries

You will be notified by telephone of any serious injury to your child
(cuts, sprains, breaks, bumps, etc.) that requires medical attention.
If we are not able to contact you during an emergency, we will contact
the emergency contacts, or send a letter home. Student Insurance
Packages will be circulated at the start of the school year. This
package provides excellent coverage in the case of an emergency or
injury. Please look over the information provided.

Pro Social Programming

The Pro Social Program is a school wide behavioural system that
promotes a positive school community. At our weekly assemblies we
come together to celebrate as a community of learners as well as
proactively educate students on targeted skills, appropriate responses
and school wide consequences. It also helps to supplement Prairie
Rose School’s Code of Conduct. The purpose of this is to promote a
healthy school culture where high levels of achievement occur within a
positive safe and caring school environment

 All Prairie Rose staff follow a consistent process in dealing with
inappropriate behaviours. Minor offenses occurring at recess such as:
play fighting, unsafe physical contact, disrespect, non-compliance, and
inappropriate language receive:
1. A verbal warning
2. 5 Minutes wall recess
3. 5 minute wall recess and note to classroom teacher -
The classroom teacher will then provide a consequence taking into
account the student and the classroom management system.
Page 28

Code of Conduct

The Winnipeg School Division believes that effective student
management teaches appropriate behaviours and incorporates a range
of consequences for any inappropriate behaviours. Consequences
should be based on individual needs, the degree of the problem and the
ability of the person to understand and handle the consequences. The
student will have certain roles and responsibilities to ensure a safe,
positive and caring school.

The student is asked for the following, but not limited to:
• Be polite, respectful and cooperative to all, regardless of race,
   religion, gender, age, or sexual orientation. Abusive language and
   aggressive behavior are unacceptable at all times.
• Attend school regularly, be on time and have all required supplies
   and completed homework.
• After the dismissal bells leave the school grounds promptly.
• Dress appropriately for classes and school activities.
• Respect school property and the property of others.
• Make the most of the time in school; strive for academic excellence
   through classroom participation
• Solve conflicts peacefully through discussion or by seeking help.
   Bullying or abusing another person verbally, socially, physically,
   psychologically, including sexual intimidation, cyberbullying (or in
   any electronic form) will not be tolerated.
• Students understand the ethical, cultural, and societal issues related
   to technology.
• Students practise responsible use of technology systems,
   information, and software. Winnipeg School Division Policy JFCBA -
   Appropriate use of Communication Devices and On-line Information
   is followed at Prairie Rose School.
Winnipeg School Division                                     Page 29

Code of Conduct

•   Be aware that gang involvement will not be tolerated on school
    sites or at any other school sanctioned event/activity.

    electronic mail and the Internet, including the prohibition of material
    that the school has determined to be objectionable.
•   Be aware that trafficking, using, possessing or being under the
    influence of alcohol or illicit drug is unacceptable and will not be

•   Any physical, out of control aggression with intent to hurt and injure
    where a student does not respond to adult intervention will result
    in a visit to the office, an incident report filled out and parents
    contacted. If the principal observes that pupil of the school has
    been harmed as a result of the unacceptable conduct, the principal
    will, as soon as reasonably possible, notify the pupil's parent or
    guardian of the nature of the harm, the cause and steps taken to
    ensure the pupil’s future safety. Administration will review the
    incident and decide on a consequence and inform both parents/
    guardians.

    safety and or property/belongings are at risk Policy JFG Student
    Search and Seizure will be followed.
