Student safety is very important in the Campbell River School District. To help schools with this shared responsibility, we ask parents to notify the school when your child is going to be away or arriving late to school.
Please call the school and report the absence through the attendance line or email the school office indicating your child’s first and last name, the date, class or teacher, and reason for the absence.
Attendance is recorded each morning and after lunch. Absences are reported to the school office and an attempt is made to contact home if we have not been informed of the absence ahead of time.
Regular school attendance is important for continuity of instruction, classroom participation and learning outcomes. However, we recognize that parents may choose to take their child out of school for holidays, sporting events and other activities throughout the year. Teachers might be able to provide some work for students who are absent for a short term, provided sufficient preparation time is available, but parents should not expect the school to provide in depth learning support in these instances.
If your child will be away for an extended period due to long term illness or hospitalization, the school will make alternative arrangements to continue to deliver educational programming. Please contact your child’s teacher as early as possible to inquire about materials for home study.
