A Message from the Principal re: Digital Citizenship

As we move into Week 5, the District would like to make sure that students and parents are clear with our expectations in regards to practicing and adhering to Digital Citizenship and the appropriate usage of Microsoft Teams and Google tools.

Our Director of Instructional Learning and Innovation, Ms. Maureen McRae-Stanger, and our District Technology Facilitator, Ms. Sabine Shaw, have created a video for New Westminster students and parents to view.

Here is the link to the video:

Your Day 1 Block B teacher will be organizing a class meeting early this week to view the video with the students again and to review the expectations so that everyone is clear about digital citizenship.  Students without a Day 1 Block B class should watch the video and report to Ms. Susana Quan, VP, at

There will be a short quiz which will require every student to complete after viewing the video.  Stay tuned for further instructions from your Day 1 Block B teacher.

Students who do not follow these expectations could be:

  • Removed from the meeting immediately
  • Parents and admin contacted
  • If this type of misbehaviour continues a second time—online meeting privileges should be removed. Teachers will provide the activities and lessons in an alternative manner to the student as the student will not be permitted to participate in meetings or live lessons.

On behalf of our District, thank you all for your attention to this.

Murray McLeod, Principal
