School Policies and Procedures

Some Important Reminders for Families

 ATTENDANCE:   Every student is required to attend school daily.  When a student must be absent from school, it is important that a parent/guardian communicate with the office by calling 604-713-5159, school extension number is 10.  You may also email if you find emailing is easier for you. Your child’s absence must be reported before 8:30 a.m. 

 LATE ARRIVAL:   If you know your child is going to be late, you must call or email to let us know your child will be late.


Parents who are picking up their child for a mid-day appointment are requested to sign out their child.

There is a “student sign-out” binder on the office counter where you walk into office.  When there is a planned appointment, please send a note with your child to the classroom teacher.

 ILLNESS:   If a child becomes ill at school, we will contact the child’s parent or guardian to arrange for the child to go home or to a caregiver as soon as possible.

 ACCIDENTS/INJURIES: If a child is injured at school, we make every attempt to contact his/her parent and ensure that they receive medical attention.  When necessary, a student may be transported directly to the hospital.

 TELEPHONE: Students are permitted to use the school telephone for important situations. Personal cell phones/electronic devices are not allowed at school.   Should you require immediate contact with your child during the school day, please call the office. (604-713-5433)

Lunch Expectations

Play First Lunch

Children who stay at school for lunch, are expected to follow our lunch expectations.  We encourage families to pack a healthy snack and lunch. 

Students go outside to play from 12:00-12:30 and then they come inside to eat. 


Students are not permitted to leave the school (without an adult) to buy a lunch or eat away from the school grounds anywhere other than their own home.  Notes are not accepted for this purpose.  It is expected that students who need to buy a lunch may do so before arriving to school in the morning.


Students are responsible for their personal property.  It is recommended that all items of clothing, shoes boots and personal items be clearly identified with the child’s name.   Misplaced items are placed in the office.  Smaller, more valuable items are sometimes brought to the office.
