Attendance Policy and Absenses

Attendance Policy and Absences

Schools now only receive funding for students who are actually in class. Every day a student misses school, even for an excused absence, the school loses about $55 a day in income. We ask that you support our efforts to increase student attendance by:

  • Planning family trips during the school holidays
  • Try to schedule doctor’s or dentist’s appointments after school hours. If the appointment is in the middle of the day, please bring them to school in the morning
  • Allow your child to stay home when he/she has a contagious illness or is too sick to be comfortable at school (i.e. fever, vomiting)

If your child is going to be absent, please telephone the school in the morning the child is absent at 290-2121 ex 4. If they have a doctor or dentist appointment, please bring a note from your appointment and submit it to our front office.
