Student Attendance

Attendance, Lates and Early Dismissal

Attendance Procedures

To provide quality educational opportunities for all students, parents, students and the school must work closely in supporting regular daily attendance. If students are absent, parents are asked to call the school and report the absence on the attendance line at 1-833-244-5565.  We also have a new attendance system call Safe Arrival which is accessed through School Messenger.  Here is some information about it Safe Arrival. In addition you may also want to advise the teacher directly by e-mail.

Extended Absence

Extended, “during the school year holidays” affect student performance. Please consider this carefully when planning holidays. Please understand that while staff will do do their utmost to be supportive, they are not obligated to provide instructional materials for students due to extended family holidays.

Arriving Late and Leaving Early

Students should arrive at 8:45 a.m. to allow 10 minutes for a locker visit and organization for the day.  Students should be seated in the classroom and ready to learn by 8:55 a.m, Period 1. Students must report to the office when arriving late for school. Students are expected to arrive promptly to all classes. Individual incidents of tardiness will be handled by the classroom teachers. Chronic tardiness will result in a disciplinary action and parents will be contacted. In the event tardiness continues to be a problem, administration will become involved. Students leaving school at any time during the day must be signed out by a parent or guardian at the office, by either coming into the office or calling from the parking lot once you arrive to pick the student up.

Early Arrival

The doors will be locked until 8:45am so students arriving prior to 8:45 am must remain outside the front entrance, until the entry bell has rung.  The only exceptions to this rule are early extra-curricular, supervised activities.
