Attendance and Call Back


In the interest of the child’s progress at school, it is important to maintain regular attendance and to avoid arriving late. However, when absence or late arrival is necessary, we ask you to note the following procedures:

Absences - please leave a message on the school's Callback phone at 604.903.3275 or follow the prompts on the main school line 604.903.3270 before 9:00 am if your child will be absent that day. Also, leave a message at the same number if you are withdrawing your child for the afternoon.

Late Arrivals - children who arrive late for school must check in at the office before proceeding to class. ​


Call Back Program

In order to provide an added measure of safety for our children, the office will follow a “call back” procedure. If your child does not arrive at school in the morning or afternoon and we do not have prior notification, we will proceed as follows:

    • attempt to contact parent through home or business number
    • call emergency numbers that you have provided

​It is important that you assist us with this program by:
    • calling the school between 8:30 and 9:00 am at 604.903.3275 if your child will be late or absent
    • letting us know if your emergency contacts change
