If a pupil did violate rules, faculty members would only issue a time-out ticket and/or put the child separately in the principal’s room to make him/her calm down. In any extreme case, parents would be called in to take the very child home.
9) Children and all camper staff will be respectful of the Good Counsel Academy campus properties both indoor and outdoor. For example: For indoor, tables and chairs will not be written upon and disfigure in anyway. For outdoor, no littering, no climbing trees or any activities that could potentially hurt students, etc. In accordance to our camp philosophy, we teach our children to try to leave the world (the campus in this case) a
better place each day better than we found it.

Older or more mature children are expected to set good examples for younger children to follow. Bullying in any form physical or verbally will not be tolerated at our camp.
14) Since our camp strongly value and promote a child’s character development first and foremost over any academic or physical prowess, we integrate virtues and promote respect with all of our learning and games. We foster inspiration over competitions when others do well and learn from each other success and failures. We expect and will reinforce your highest intentions for your children such as sharing, respect, responsible
citizenship, and being a filial child to provide the best environment for your child to success and thrive with integrity at our camp as well as out in the world.

Xpeed Learning Academy General Safety Rules for Parents:

Parents, review these 10 critical safety tips with your kids. Reinforce them daily and your kids will become safety experts in no time at all.

1. Always TAKE A FRIEND when walking to and from school. It’s safer and more fun to be with your friends. Walk and ride in well-lit areas, and never take short cuts. Follow all the rules.
2. Stay with a group while waiting at the bus stop. If anyone bothers you while going to or from school, get away from that person, and TELL a trusted adult like your parents or teacher. If an adult approaches you for help or directions, remember grownups needing help should not ask children for help; they should ask other adults.
3. If someone you don’t know or feel comfortable with offers you a ride, say NO. Never hitchhike, and only accept a ride from someone if your parents have told you it is okay.
4. If someone follows you on foot, get away from him or her as quickly as you can. If someone follows you in a car, turn around and go in the other direction. Always be sure to TELL your parents or a trusted adult what happened.
5. If someone tries to take you somewhere, quickly get away and yell, “This person is trying to take me away!” or “This person is not my father (mother)!”
6. Never leave school with someone you don’t feel comfortable with or know. Always CHECK FIRST with your parents or another trusted adult. If someone you don’t know or feel comfortable with tells you that there is an emergency and they want you to go with them, always CHECK FIRST before you do anything. Make sure you TELL a trusted adult if you notice someone you don’t know hanging around.
7. Leave items and clothing with your name on them at home. If someone you don’t know calls out your name, don’t be fooled or confused.
8. If you want to change your plans after school, always CHECK FIRST with your parents. Never play in parks, malls, or video arcades by yourself. Make sure you have your parents’ permission, and they know where you are going to be. Never accept money or gifts from anyone until you CHECK FIRST with your parents.
9. If you go home alone after school, check to see that everything is okay before you go in. Once inside, call your parents to let them know that you are okay. Make sure you follow your “Home Alone” rules of keeping the door locked; not opening the door for or talking to anyone who stops by unless the person is a trusted family friend or relative, you feel comfortable being alone with that person, and the visit has been pre-approved by your parents; and not telling people who call that you are home alone. Have a neighbor or trusted adult that you can call if you’re scared or there’s an emergency.
10. Trust your feelings. If someone makes you feel scared or uncomfortable, get away as fast as you can and TELL a trusted adult. You deserve to feel safe, and you should keep asking until you get the help you need.
1. Learn the school's emergency procedures. Emergency plans and phone numbers are usually included in school handbooks and posted in classrooms. Taking a few extra minutes to familiarize yourself and your child with emergency information can give her/him the confidence s/he
needs to act quickly in emergency situations.
2. Know travel routes to and from the school. Make sure you and your child know both primary and alternate routes. In an emergency, roads can be blocked and it's important to have a backup plan.
3. Know and follow school security and safety measures. These might include signing in when visiting the school, being escorted when walking through the building, or wearing a visitor pass.
Following these procedures also sets a great example for your kids.
4. Talk with your child about safety. Be specific. Talk about instinct and paying attention to funny feelings of fear. Explain what to do if she doesn't feel safe (find a teacher, call 911, etc.).
5. Make sure she knows how to contact you or a trusted neighbor who is likely to be at home. 5. Inform school staff about health and emotional concerns. Whether your child has a food allergy, a physical disability, or has been subject to bullying, make sure to keep your child's teachers and principal in the loop.
6. Get involved. Talk with the principal about what you can do to increase school safety, such as organizing parents to form a neighborhood watch before and after school. Sometimes parent groups are highly successful in making improvements in traffic safety during drop off and pick up times.

School Safety Rules
 Stay in well lit areas. Don’t take shortcuts.
 If you have to wait for a bus, stay with the group.
 If anyone bothers you or asks for help, get away from that person and tell the teacher, parent or other trusted adults. Grown ups don’t ask children for help; they ask other adults.
 What if someone offers you a ride or says your parents sent them? Say “Leave me alone! I’m going to scream!"
 Never get in the car with an unknown adult.
 Don’t ever hitchhike.
 If someone follows you in a car, quickly turn around and go in the other direction. Remember to ALWAYS TELL your parents or another trusted adult about it.
 What if someone follows you on foot or tries to take you? Remember to try and say: “Get away" and yell, "This is not my parent!”
 Keep yelling and remember to tell your parents when you get home or to school.
 What if someone you don’t know comes to walk you home from school? Never leave school with someone you don’t know.
 No matter what a person tells you, check first with the teacher, principal or call your parents yourself to be sure.
 Do you sometimes write your name on books, clothing or other school supplies? Leave things with your name on them at home.
 Someone you don’t know may call out your name and fool or confuse you.
 What do you do after school? If you want to go to a park or the Mall check first to be sure it’s OK.

Remember: Never go alone and always have your parents’ permission. They need to know where you are going to be. While you are out, never accept money or gifts from anyone you don’t know until you TELL YOUR PARENTS FIRST.
 Do you go home alone after school? Lots of kids have parents who work and are not there after school.
Do you know your house rules? Make sure you go over the home alone rules with your parents.
 Keep the door(s) locked.
 Call your parents when you get home.
 Don’t open the door for anyone.
 Don’t tell people who call you are home alone.
 Call a trusted adult if you are scared.
Your most important tool is to trust your feelings. If something doesn’t “FEEL” right or if you feel scared or uncomfortable, get away and “TELL” a trusted adult as soon as you can. You should always feel safe and someone is always there to help.
