Attendance & Absences

Arrival/Dismissal

The school front doors open at 7.45am and close for the day at 4:00pm.

As the days darken and the mornings get cooler, make sure your children are dressed appropriately to wait outdoors.

For student & staff safety, please follow our Parking Lot Safety Guidelines when coming to the school.

 

Student Attendance

Classroom instructional time is very valuable! In order to successfully learn, students must regularly attend school and be on time! We inform our students that school is their job. As adults they will be expected to be at work each day and to be there on time.

Please make every effort to reinforce regular and prompt arrival to school.

Patterns of regular non-attendance or lateness impact learning.  Parents may be contacted by phone or letter seeking support in promoting regular, prompt attendance. If your child arrives after 8:45 am they will require a late slip from the office which should then be given to the teacher.

 

Student Absences

Everyone is mindful of how quickly illness can spread through a class or the school and that there are times when occasional absences are unavoidable.

It is important to note that if your child is ill, keep them home. Please do not send a sick child to school hoping that they may get better. Err on the side of caution, and keep your child home to help prevent others from becoming sick.

 

Reporting an Absence

Please report your child's absence to the school office:

  • By phone:  604.792.4257 and press 1 for our 24/7 attendance line.

Signing Out

If during the day you must take your child out of school (i.e., Doctor/Dentist or other appointments), please send a note to school with your child and have them it give to office for processing. Parents/guardians may also sign-out their children in person at the school office. (Please note, office staff reserve the right to check parent/guardian identification prior to releasing students).

It is very important for us to know when a child has left the building/grounds. Upon returning the same day, please have your child to come to the office and sign back in.

Information & Announcements

Introducing The A.D. Rundle Integrated Arts & Tech Cohort September 2020

Registration for The A.D. Rundle Integrated Arts and Technology was between Monday January 20, and March 31, 2020. Applications after March 31 can still be made online; and applicants will be added to the existing waitlist. Please visit https://sd33.bc.ca/integrated-arts-and-technology-k-12-program to register and for further information.

This is an AMAZING opportunity for our school. There is already a buzz from our current staff because this form of learning is best practice.  Students will still learn all required curriculum.  Teachers will use an arts based lens to integrate all subjects.  Many of our staff are already using this style of teaching because it makes learning relevant to the student.

Please note: School organization for the 2019-20 school year will remain status quo.  If you would like any more information on this initiative please do not hesitate to email me at, scott_wallace@sd33.bc.ca 

Please submit your child's immunization record to Public Health

As you may be aware, starting July 1, 2019, parents and guardians have been requested to report the vaccination status of their school-age children. All B.C. students are required to have their complete immunization records in the Provincial Immunization Registry. This applies to children from kindergarten to grade 12, in public and independent schools and those who are home-schooled. As a result of this change in protocols, Public Health staff will be checking the immunization records for kindergarten-age children before they enter the school system and are requesting that parents or guardians of children in other grades to check their child’s online immunization records and update them accordingly.  Please click the link below for more Information on how this is to be accomplished.

 

Please Note: The school does not keep a record of your child's immunizations
