CHEC students are expected to conduct themselves at all times in ways that are a credit to them, their family and the school. The privilege of participating in the activities and functions of the school carry with it the responsibility to behave in accordance with the standards and expectations of the school. If students fail to do so, they will be subject to the disciplinary consequences.
