Call Back System - Phone 604.903.3720

Parents are requested to notify the school BEFORE 8:40 a.m. if their child is going to be late or absent from school.  If a child is going to be absent in the afternoon only, we request notification no later than 1:00 p.m. on the day of the absence.

If the school does not receive notification of a child's absence, a staff member will contact the parent/guardian, and if unable to reach, the emergency contact person, to confirm that the student is not at school. 

The Call Back System is available 24-hours a day throughout the week.  The call back telephone number is our main phone number at 604.903.3720.
