If Your Child Will Be Absent Or Late
To ensure that your children get to school safely, our parent volunteers or office staff call home each morning to check on the whereabouts of absent children. Please contact the school ahead of time to let us know if your child will not be at school, or will be late that day. This can be done by:

  1. Sending a note to the office with a sibling or a neighbour.
  2. Leaving a message on the school absentee phone line at 604-878-5395. This is an answering machine connected to a telephone line, which is separate from the regular office number so that parents, at their convenience, can let the school know of any absences or late arrivals.
  3. Contacting the office directly at 596-9554 after 9:00 a.m.
    *Students arriving after 9:00 a.m. are required to report to the office for a late slip.
