  • Employee Code of Conduct

    From the SMES Employee Administrative Policies & Procedures: Student Relations Policy and Procedures
    Student Relations
    All employees should be conscious of and actively manage their relationships with students. In particular:
    • Students must never be left in a room unsupervised. This includes breaks, lunch, study halls, rehearsal periods, etc. 
    • Classrooms should always be locked when you leave.
    • Window blinds must be fully open at all times, except during a lockdown and when necessary to block the sun through an individual window.
    • Faculty and staff members should not be alone in a closed room with an individual student. If you find yourself in a room with an individual student you must ensure that the door is opened and secured in that position until the student leaves. Exceptions to this would be during a lock-down emergency, and Chaplains, Counselors, Nurses, and other Administrative Staff specifically designated by the Head of School, when necessary to undertake their work.
    • Avoid all but essential physical contact with students. 
    • Do not discuss non-school-related, personal matters regarding the student or yourself with a student.
    • Electronic communications with a student should be restricted to school-related matters and only using your school email address. Do not use a personal email address. Do not text or call a student on the phone and do not ‘friend’ a student on social media.
    • Do not go off campus with a single student, and do not transport a single student in your car except in an emergency.
    • Do not use student bathrooms.
