Safe Arrival Program

One measure of keeping students safe is ensuring students have safely arrived at school.To that end, we currently have a Safe Arrival protocol in place. 

If your child is going to be absent or late, you are responsible for calling the Safe Arrival line (416-393-1739) before 8:30 a.m. reporting the reason for the absence.

If we have not been informed of the reason for the absence, the automated school connects system will call you.
