Positive behavioral interventions and supports (PBIS) is an approach schools use to promote school safety and good behavior. Here at Cape St. Francis Elementary, we provide learning opportunities for students in the area of behavior expectations and strategies in our PBIS program. Our Safe and Caring School Committee created these visual reminders that are posted throughout the school to help support students.

School Lunch

The School Lunch Association is a registered charity whose mission is to operate a non-stigmatizing program that provides a hot, nutritious lunch for school children, regardless of a families’ financial situation. All orders are Confidential. We ask $3.75 per meal, but each family decides the amount they can contribute toward the cost of the meal.

Online orders can be made at

Kiss and Ride Program

Kiss and Ride is done each morning at 8:50. Teachers and volunteers greet the students and welcome each student to the school day. Parents drive up and children get out of vehicles independently. There is no parking in the Kiss and Ride lane which is clearly marked for all drivers.

It’s a great way to ensure safety and meet the children each day.

Bullying: Awareness and Prevention

Bullying is typically repeated behaviour that is intended to cause harm to another person(s). A person participates in bullying if they directly carry out, assist or encourage the behaviour in any way. Those that engage in bullying behaviour are perceived to be in a position of power. Bullying can be physical, verbal, social and/or electronic. In some circumstances bullying is an illegal activity. (SACS Policy, 2013. EECD).

Individuals who bully say or do something intentionally hurtful to others and they keep doing it, with no sense of regret or remorse - even when targets of bullying show or express their hurt or tell the aggressors to stop.

Internet and Social Media Safety

The Newfoundland and Labrador English School District recognizes our students are facing increasing challenges and pressures from social media and the Internet. While we are aware there are many positives associated with these technologies, we also acknowledge that at times they may be used inappropriately. Great strides in educating our students about Internet and social media safety have been made in recent years, but we believe we can and should do even more. Our Internet and Social Media Safety (ISMS) Program continues to provide our students with important information and instruction on the use of such communications mediums, playing a key role in helping young learners make good decisions in real life and online.
