All lunch bags and water bottles should be clearly marked with the student’s name.

Parents can also email information regarding absences to the Summer Program Director. There are no refunds for days or weeks that students cannot attend summer session classes.

  • Behavioral Expectations

    Students and families participating in Summer Programs operate under the mission, vision and core values of Forest Ridge School of the Sacred Heart.  Policies and procedures governing Forest Ridge School of the Sacred Heart apply to students and families attending Summer Programs. Te Forest Ridge Middle School Student-Parent Handbook can be found here.
    Students at Forest Ridge are expected to be respectful of others and the learning environment. Guidelines are established to help provide everyone in the learning community with a positive experience.
    • Responding to and treating one another with courtesy
    • Helping one another
    • Greeting and being courteous and helpful to any guest
    • Taking care of school property
    • Being respectful to the condition and use of common space
    • Cleaning up after him/herself where ever s/he is on campus
    • Showing respect for speakers by listening attentively
    • Affirming the successes and gifts of others at all times and with appropriate responses
    • Being grateful to each member of the school community and expressing gratitude whenever possible
    Respect and consideration for each member of the summer program community is essential for the well-being of everyone. A student who is disrespectful towards a teacher, a staff member, another student, or anyone on campus will be held accountable for her/his lack of courtesy.
    When a student has difficulty following the behavior guidelines and expectations, classroom teachers will redirect the student and when necessary will use best practices of classroom management to hold a student accountable for a lack of respect and courtesy.  As needed, a teacher will communicate with a parent regarding student behavior that falls outside expectations.
  • Behavior Violations

    Behavioral Violations are given for more severe behaviors. A behavior violation signifies that a student has engaged in behavior that is inappropriate and not in keeping with the Goals and Criteria of Sacred Heart Schools.
    The following are some examples of behavioral choices that are considered “behavioral violations”:
    • Harassment/Bullying  of another student or group of students
    • Swearing
    • Vandalism
    • Stealing
    • Cheating
    • Disrespectful or Disruptive language or behavior
    • Unacceptable physical contact
    • Inappropriate technology use (See Forest Ridge Acceptable Use Policy here)
    • Use of drugs, alcohol or tobacco
    • Possession of weapons of any kind
    • Inappropriate videotaping on campus
    • Posting school generated photos or videos to internet sites without permission
    In the unlikely event that a student attending Summer Programs made a behavior choice considered a Behavior Violation, the Summer Programs Director will communicate the needed and appropriate consequence to the student and his/her family.  Severe and repeated behavior violations can result in a student’s removal from all Summer Programs.
