Regular, punctual attendance is critical to a student’s academic success. While parents have the option of registering children in JK and Kindergarten, once that decision has been made all registered students are required to be at school and should not be absent for trivial reasons(reasons other than illness or appointments that cannot be scheduled outside of the instructional day. Please note, however, that students who are at school will be following regular routines, so that only in extreme circumstances will children be permitted to remain indoors at recess times.
Late arrival – students arriving at school late must report to the office to check in. It is imperative that the school has the name of an alternative person to contact (friend, neighbour, relative) in the event that the parent/guardian cannot be reached.
