Daily Health Check and Student Absence Line

Please remember to complete the daily health check each morning before arriving at school

If you child will be absent from school please leave a message on the safe arrival line 604-713-5159 extension 62 or email

Reporting Student Absences: Student safety is of paramount importance at the Vancouver School District. Ensuring student safety is a shared responsibility. In order to assist schools, we ask parents to notify schools of student absences. If your child will be absent from school, please phone the school to report this absence as early as possible. Parents should leave a message on a dedicated answering service by calling 604-713-5159 ext. 62. Messages will be received before the office is open. School offices are busy places: consistently notifying the school in advance of your child’s absence will significantly improve the efficiency and effectiveness of the Safe Arrival Morning Routine.

To Report Your Childs Absence – Please call 604-713-5159 ext. 62 prior to 9 am on the first day of the absence.

When reporting a student absence, please provide the following information: - The first and last name of your child – please spell the last name - Grade and division number - The reason for the absence - The date of the absence and the length of the absence if your child will be away for more than one day.
