Reporting Absences

 

Attendance Procedures

 

Absences

  • If your child will be absent, please call the office (604-932-5321) or send an email to [email protected] and cc your child's teacher.  
  • Please indicate the child's first and last name and the duration of the absence. This is to ensure that your child is safe.
  • If your child is unexcused, an absence email will be sent out by 9:30am after attendance is posted and lates have been cross-checked at the office. 


Lates

  • Notify the office if your child will be late using the same method as above.
  • Sign In – students who arrive late (after 8:30am) must come into the office and sign the "Late Sign In" binder. This is to ensure an accurate record of when students have arrived safely and to update our attendance.
  • Go to Class – students must go directly to class after signing in. We ask that parents say goodbye in the hallway in front of the office and allow children to walk to class independently. 
 

Early Pick Ups

  • Notify the teacher and the office of the pick-up time.
  • Students are to wait in the office at the designated time for their parent or guardian to arrive.
  • Sign Out - a parent or guardian must sign out students in the green "Early Sign Out" binder located in the office so that we know they have been picked up safely. 

 

Children Sent Home

  • Our policy is to send students who become ill or injured during the school day home as soon as possible. Our practice is to call parents and to ask that the student be picked up. For this reason, it is important that parents keep updated work and emergency phone numbers in our office files.
