Student Absences

Student Absences

CALL THE SCHOOL OFFICE TO REPORT ALL ABSENCES OR LATE ARRIVALS

If your child is going to be absent from school or late for any reason, please call the school's Safe Arrival Absence Reporting line at 416-394-6411. This line is available to leave messages 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. You can also call the school office at 416-394-6360 anytime during school day business hours (8:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.).

While you may wish to advise your child's teacher by way of a written note or in his/her agenda, it is imperative to let the school office know of any absences or late arrivals. Each morning and afternoon teachers send their class attendance to the office for processing. If a student is absent and there has not been a call or note received informing the school, a call will be made to the parent or guardian. If the parent/guardian cannot be reached, attempts will then be made to reach alternate contacts listed. If none of the contacts can be reached, and the school cannot be satisfied as to the child's safety, a decision to take further action, including calling the police, rests with the principal.
