REPORTING STUDENT ABSENCES
Parents are asked to call the main office at 604-594-3474 to report a student absence. When possible, parents are asked to report absences in advance. Please CLEARLY state the student’s name, grade, reason for absence and length of absence. Parents will receive an email indicating the block(s) that their child has been marked absent from. Office staff will call home during the school day if an absence is recorded as NOT excused.
ATTENDANCE IS A KEY TO SUCCESS IN SCHOOL
We ask parents to be partners with us to help track the absenteeism of your child. Please monitor your child’s attendance through Parent Connect. Phone us if there is an illness or appointment. Most of all, emphasize with your child the importance of attending classes. Instructional time is key to student learning. If you have any concerns regarding your child’s attendance, achievement or any other issues, please feel free to contact the counsellors, Ms. McPhedran and/or Mr. Randhawa.
