Safe Arrival

Student safety is of paramount importance at the Vancouver School Distict. Ensuring safety is a shared responsibility. In order to assist our school, we ask parents/guardians to notify us of student absences. If you child will be away from school, please phone or email the school to report this absence as early as possible. Messages will be received beofe the office is open. Notifying the office in advance of your child's absence will significantly improve the efficiency and effectiveness of the Safe Arrival morning routine.

On behalf of the office team at Dickens Annex, thank you very much for following our district-wide Safe Arrival Program. In order to help us keep track of the students in our building, please continue to report your child's absence in the following ways:
