Students are expected to attend remote learning regularly and be punctual.  Parents are required to phone the school, 519-576-5503 ext. 1 if a student will be absent or late. Messages may be left on the attendance line at any time.

If a child has not arrived at school and a phone call or email or note has not been received, the administrative assistant 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 will be notified and sent to the home.

If your child is going to be absent, please:
● Send email your child’s teacher in advance when possible
● Phone the school and leave a message on the attendance line which operates at any time during the day or night
● State the date of the absence, your child’s name, spell your child’s last name, the teacher’s name, and the reason for the absence. Unless you notify us otherwise, we will assume your child will be back the following day. At no time is the student to report themselves absent for the school day or is the student to have someone less than 18 years of age report them absent
● Contact the school and speak with the administrative assistant
