The student MAY be able to access public wireless, if available, and the personal device is equipped for wireless access.

- The H.C.D.S.B. and school are not responsible for storing and/or securing the equipment in the classroom and/or school.
The staff and students at St. Benedict School are committed to creating a safe and bully free learning environment. We encourage our students to show respect for each other by keeping their hands and feet to themselves and to include others in what they say and do. When students find themselves in disagreement with other students on the playground they are expected to use peaceful problem solving strategies, including:
- telling the other person what the concern is in a quiet, respectful voice
- asking the person to stop doing whatever it is that is causing the problem
- leaving the immediate presence of the other person
- asking the supervisor or peer mediator for assistance
