FOIP/Confidentiality of Information
Occasionally, the school receives requests from the public, such as parents or guardians regarding information about their child’s attendance or performance in school. If you are 18 years of age or older, or 17 years of age and living independently, information related to your school activities is confidential unless you provide permission to release information. You may already have provided this permission by completing the “release of information” section on your Centre High Campus application. You may, at any time, give the administration written permission for disclosure of information.
If you are under 18 years of age and not living independently, information may be released to your parent or guardian.
No one, including parents, can access information about students 18 years of age or older without written consent of the student. If you are positive the student has given written permission, please proceed to the Administration Office at Centre High Campus to make your request in person; photo identification must be shown so your identity can be verified. No information will be released over the phone.
There is NO student parking available. Parking is available downtown at public parking lots and meters.
ETS bus and LRT services offer a viable alternative for student transportation. Monthly bus passes are available at the Finance office, sold daily 8 am – 2 pm; price TBA. Students must present a current student ID card at time of purchase. For schedule & route information, go to contact ETS at 780-496-1600. www.takeETS.com
Bus passes are NOT available for summer classes.
Dressing For Success
Students demonstrate integrity by dressing appropriately for school as they would for work in an informal service business. Clothing should be suitable for modesty, and must not be decorated with images or lettering that would be offensive to students, staff or the public.
Clothing which covers the chest, back and midriff is considered appropriate. Shirt/top must touch pants/skirt at the hipline or waistline. Clothing that covers undergarments at all times (including when bending down) is also part of the dress code at Centre High. Inside the school headwear will not be worn unless for religious or medical reasons. In situations where clothing is inappropriate, students will be asked to alter their dress, or they may be sent home and their parents consulted (if applicable). Please note, for health and safety concerns, students must wear shoes in the building at all times.
Electronic Device Search
If Edmonton Public School Board staff have reasonable grounds to believe that an electronic device contains evidence pertaining to a breach of the District’s Student Behaviour and Conduct Policy and/or the School Behaviour Policy, it is the expectation that students make available to school administration the unaltered contents of the permanent and/or removable memory of their cellular phone or electronic device. Failure to make the contents available can be considered willful disobedience and is grounds for disciplinary action.

This policy will be made publicly available, provided to all staff, students and parents, and will be reviewed annually.
