For Parents

Absences

All absences must be entered into our Parent Portal - Compass.  If your child is going to be absent for an extended, unexpected period due to illness then we would appreciate a phone call but it is not necessary to phone if your child is only going to be away for a day or two.

If parents bring children to school after the bell, they must first go to the office to fill in a late note. Late arrivers unaccompanied by parents must bring a note of explanation to the office before going to class. If children are to be absent from school for any reason other than illness for less than 10 days, then a signed note from a parent must be provided. If the absence is for more than 10 school days, then an application for leave form must be completed.  Forms are available from the Related Documents section on this page or from the school office.

Frequent family vacations and prolonged absences from school are discouraged as they negatively impact on student learning. Homework is not provided to children who are absent from school.
