Saint James School Handbook of Policies and Procedures
The Handbook of Policies and Procedures exists to foster the efficient operation of Saint James School. In appropriate circumstances, the Principal has full discretion to take actions other than those specified in the handbook. The handbook is not intended to and should not be considered to create any legal rights for students or parents/guardians. All interpretations of school rules rest finally and exclusively with the Principal.
The handbook is subject to change at any time when determined to be necessary by the school administration. If significant changes are made to the handbook, parents/guardians will be notified.
The handbook is considered to be in effect once it is distributed to the parents/guardians at the beginning of each school year. Parents/guardians and students should read and familiarize themselves with the handbook.
Saint James School Harassment, Intimidation, Bullying and Hazing Policy
Saint James School prohibits any act of harassment, intimidation, or bullying of a student. A safe and civil environment in school is necessary for students to learn and achieve high academic standards. Harassment, intimidation, or bullying, like any other disruptive or violent behaviors, is conduct that disrupts both a student’s ability to learn and a school’s ability to educate students in safe environment. See APPENDIX D in the Parent-Student Handbook.
