Please call the school when your child is absent. The school answering machine operates overnight from 4:00 p.m. until 8:30 a.m. to receive your messages. Please call 905-528-7975 and give your child’s name and homeroom teacher and the reason for the absence. It is very important that all families fill out and return the school closure and emergency contact forms and return them to their teacher.

Whenever a student is absent from school an Explanatory Note by the parent must be sent with the student upon his/her return to school OR – a telephone call made by the parent on the day of the student´s absence. We have an answering machine for your convenience.

Students that need to be excused from classes to attend an appointment (doctor, dentist, music, etc.) are asked to bring a parental note to the homeroom teacher at 9:00 a.m. in order to receive an Excuse Slip. Students, who normally stay for lunch, are required to bring a parental note to be excused from the lunchtime program on any given day.

Students, who report to school after 9:15 a.m. or 12:30 p.m., must report to the office for an Admission Slip.

Consequences are assigned to students who are repeatedly late arriving. Students will not be admitted to classes after 9:00 a.m. and 12:20 p.m. without checking in at the office for an Admission Slip.
