​Attendance is recorded each morning and after lunch for school records. Absences from morning classes are reported to the school secretary who phones each child's home to report their absence from school. This only occurs when the school has not been informed of the absence ahead of time.
Extended Absences
When a student is absent due to sickness or hospitalization, parents should arrange to maintain their child's studies by contacting the school.
Regular attendance is important. The process of education requires a continuity of instruction, classroom participation, learning experiences, and study.
Teachers may be able to provide some work for students who are absent for a short term, provided sufficient preparation time is available. For students absent due to a long term illness, an educational program may be provided by a hospital homebound teacher.
Students who are absent for holidays, sporting events, scout camps, etc. should not expect their teachers to prepare packages of work.
