When you are absent…

Parent(s)/Guardian(s) phone the school prior to 8:30 a.m. on the day a student is absent. An answering machine is available 24 hours a day (519) 885-6200 option 1.  A written explanation is required upon your return to school if the absence is not explained by telephone. It is a student’s responsibility to see his/her teachers to get any missed work.

When you are late…

When arriving late, all students must report to the office for an admit slip and must sign the late arrival book. You must also have a note or phone call from home explaining your late. The admit slip is given to your teacher when you arrive in class.

When you need to leave early…

A note or phone call from a student’s parent/guardian is required. The note is first shown to the teacher then left in the office. All students leaving school early must first go to the office and sign the early dismissal book.

In the event of illness or injury, students should report to the office and use the office phone to contact a parent or guardian. An administrator or secretary will also talk to the parent in such a situation. Student should not use their cell phones to contact parents directly.

When you are withdrawn on a short-term basis…

Parent(s)/Guardian(s) are required to notify the principal in advance of the withdrawal and complete the “Temporary Student Withdrawal” form assuming responsibility for a student’s absence from school and for any work or tests missed during that period.
