The Education Act states that students must attend school regularly and be punctual. It is imperative for the safety of the students that parents/guardians call the school, 519-884-8480, each day their child is absent. Students are not allowed to contact the school regarding their absence.
The purpose of this program is to provide a service for parents to check that their children have arrived at school safely. The program recognises that the ultimate responsibility for children rests with the parents.
If a child has not arrived at school and a phone call or note has not been received, the secretary will attempt to alert parents by telephone at home or at your place of employment if necessary. If parents cannot be contacted, we will contact the emergency number provided by the parents. Failing to reach parents or emergency contacts, the police may be notified.
