Reporting Student Absences Procedure
Students no longer need to submit a paper note to the Main Office to report absences.
To have your child’s absence excused (whether for a timeframe known in advance or after the student has returned to school):
Email email@example.com with the following info:
-First and last name of student
-Reason for absence(s)
The email absence report will only be considered valid and therefore, processed, if it is received from a parent/guardian email on file.
The attendance record in MyEd will be adjusted to indicate that the home has excused the absence. Students/Parents/Guardians are encouraged to contact their teachers directly in order to ensure students have the necessary work to not fall behind with their progress.
If an absence is for more than 3 consecutive days, parents/guardians are encouraged to contact your child’s grade counsellor and teachers to arrange for missed work to be assigned and/or determine a plan for catch-up upon their return.
