Regular Attendance / If Your Child Is Absent

Regular attendance is very important – a student’s over-all growth increases significantly over time when they attend regularly and have strong connections to all aspects of classroom and school learning.  Research demonstrates there is a powerful link between successful learning and regular school attendance. While we recognize students may be periodically absent from school, and we support important family plans and trips, please support your child by working hard to attend regularly and to be on time.  When your child is ill, we will do all we can to help them stay up to date.  If your child is out of school due to a family choice, you may contact your child’s teacher to see what is available that they can access outside of school.  ‘Work’ completed at school is only a part of a’ unit’ or progression of study and is paired with class related activites. Teachers cannot provide a replacement experience for time in the class, and activities, collaborations and explanations cannot be replicated on paper at home.

Please contact the school ‘callback line’ at 250-477-6839 if your child will be absent – if we do not hear from you, our callback line should contact you to confirm your child’s absence.  Please ensure phone numbers and email addresses are up-to-date.

**If you change a number or email, please let our office know immediately so we are able to contact you in case of emergency.**
