Student safety is of paramount importance at the Vancouver School District and Sir James Douglas Elementary. Ensuring student safety is a shared responsibility. In order to assist our school, we ask parents to notify the school of student absences. If your child will be away from school, please phone us to report this absence as early as possible. Parents should leave a message on a dedicated answering service by calling (604)713-4817 press 1 for late or absence. 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)713-4817 press 1 for late or absence report prior to 9 am on the first day of the absence.
