School Day & Routines
Our school hours are 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Supervision on the school yard begins at 8:15 a.m. For safety reasons, it is important that students not arrive at school prior to 8:15 a.m. and leave promptly at 2:30 p.m.
Arrive On Time
Students are expected to arrive on time as late arrivals disrupt learning for all students. We will work with families to support children who experience difficulty arriving on time.
Early Dismissal of Students – Appointments etc.
It is highly recommended that once a student is at school, they remain at school for the entire day.
In the exceptional circumstance that a student needs to leave early for an appointment, etc. a written note must be delivered to the office at 8:30 am by the student and an excuse slip will be provided.
Emergency Phone Numbers
Up-to-date student information enables us to contact you in an emergency. Please inform us of any changes to your telephone numbers for work, caregivers, emergency contacts.
Lost and Found
Label all clothing and possessions with first and last names. Unclaimed items will be deposited in the Lost and Found box that is located on the stage. Students and parents are encouraged to check for lost items at any time. Unclaimed items are donated to a charitable organization periodically.
Parents are required, under the new Anaphylaxis Policy, to inform the homeroom teacher and office, in writing if their child has severe, life-threatening allergies, as we need to ensure that safety precautions are put into place. Ancaster Senior is PEANUT/NUT SAFE as we have students with life-threatening allergies to peanuts and/or nuts. Please do not send your child with any peanut or nut products for lunch, snacks, or special occasion treats. Working together we can help ensure the safety of all our children.
