Reporting Student Absences:
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 604-713-4775, you may call any time 24 hours a day. Messages will be received in the
morning. 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 604-713-4775 prior to 9 am on the
first day of the absence.
Student Sign Out Procedure
you pick up your child during the school day, please ensure that you sign them
out at the school office. If you do not sign out your child, they will be
unaccounted for, and the school will identify your child as a ‘missing’ student
and will commence a search of school grounds. If the school staff do not locate
the child, and are unable to reach a parent promptly, the school will call the
Vancouver Police Department. Therefore, clear communication is essential for
ensuring the safety of your child and to prevent unnecessary searches.
you for helping us keep your children safe!
