Policies and procedures are important resources which ensure that Merton continues to provide a safe and healthy educational and work environment. It is the expectation of Merton School that all employees, parents/guardians, students and visitors of Merton; or anyone volunteering in school-sponsored events and activities will respect the school policies and procedures.
In order for the school and the school board to comply with the Education Act article 209.2(1)(2)(3)(4), the school board and school must sign a Management and Educational Success Agreement (M.E.S.A). This must be done annually. This Agreement outlines the commitments made by the school board and the school to achieve their mission of successfully instructing, qualifying and socializing students.
A safe, inclusive and accepting school environment is a necessary condition for student success. Students cannot be expected to reach their potential in an environment where they feel insecure and intimidated. We are committed to providing all students with the supports they need to learn, grow and achieve.
It is important that parents/guardians school staff work together to help resolve conflicts at school. Parents are encouraged to contact the school principal concerning misunderstandings or problems that may arise with their child(ren).
