Sleepovers, travelling, and Curfews

Students Staying Somewhere Overnight or Traveling Outside Nanaimo

The High School and Homestay do not have a designated time for curfews but here is our general guideline for host families. You should treat your student as you would your own child of similar age in the home. If you have questions about appropriate boundaries or curfews feel free to consult with the Homestay office.

Any time your student is staying overnight outside your home and/or traveling outside of Nanaimo, the custodian (David Butler) must be informed.
