Late Arrival

There is a high volume of late arrivals in the morning at school.  There are many reasons why students should not arrive late in the morning:

  • They miss morning announcements and procedures for the day;
  • They miss academic instruction time;
  • Teachers need to re-organize their class attendance for their records and for emergency readiness procedures;
  • Notes for the office and orders for the cafeteria are picked up and delivered first thing in the morning;
  • Teachers often collect homework, signed tests and check agendas first thing in the morning;
  • Secretaries have heavy workloads and need to enter late codes for all children arriving after the bell. 

Late, Absent and End-of-Day

Please be reminded that it is very important to call the school and indicate the reason why students are going to be late and absent.  If you are phoning in your child as being sick, please indicate the symptoms.  If you are changing your child’s end-of-day arrangements, notes to the teachers are required on that day – please indicate your child’s full name, teacher’s name and the date.

Photo Retakes

The photo retakes will be held on Monday, November 17.  Students who were absent on picture day will automatically be sent for retakes. 

Remembrance Day 

Tuesday, November 11 is Remembrance Day.  We would like to invite our students who participate in Scouts, Guides, Cubs, Brownies and Sparks to wear their uniforms to commemorate Remembrance Day.
