Guy B. Brown School is a caring and effective elementary school for students in Junior Kindergarten to Grade 8. Since September 2007, Guy Brown has been a dual track school and programs are offered from Grades 1 – 8 in both French and English. Our students benefit from a caring staff and community. We are currently enjoying the beautiful newly-constructed building which opened to students September 6, 2011.
Attendance & Safe Arrival
The Arrival Check Policy of the HWDSB is designed to ensure your child’s safety. It is a means by which parents and schools can account for any pupils’ unexplained failure to arrive at school. It is the responsibility of parents/guardians to inform the school when a child is going to be late or absent. Call and leave a message at any time at: 905-689-8254 with details outlining the date(s) and reason for your child’s absence.
Regular attendance and punctuality are very important habits and routines for students. The direct correlation between regular school attendance, positive work habits and enhanced student performance is well-documented.
Upon arrival at school, students proceed directly to the playground. When the bell rings, students enter through their designated entry doors from the blacktop at the back of the school. Consistent with HWDSB Policy and Legislation requirements, teachers will provide supervision on the playground 15 minutes before classes commence and 15 minutes after classes are dismissed at the end of the day.
