Students are expected to arrive at school on time. The first few minutes of class are important organizational times. Students who arrive late miss the opportunity to become organized for the day and to hear important announcements. Please do what you can to ensure that your child arrives on time and prepared to begin his/her school day. Students who are late are required to sign in at the office, for attendance purposes.

Please remember that your child must not be dropped off before 8:45 a.m. as there is no yard supervision until that time.

Absences and Safe Arrival

Parents are asked to contact the office using the attendance phone line (613-837-4623) or our online attendance link if a child is going to be absent or late. When leaving a message to report an absence, please leave the following information: your name, son/daughter’s name and teacher's name, absence for full day; a.m. only or p.m. only. If we do not receive a call or note, and your child is not here, we will phone home/work to confirm that your child is safe and accounted for.

Release of Children During School Hours and Late Arrivals

If you wish to have your child leave the school during the day, send a note to the teacher indicating the reason for leaving as well as the time. If you need to pick up your child for an appointment during the day, please try to do so during the recess or lunch breaks to minimize interruptions to classes during instructional time. Parents are asked to pick up their child from the main office and sign him/her out. The office staff will call your child to the office for pick up. Students who arrive late, or who return to school following an appointment, must report to the office upon arrival at school to sign in.

If it is necessary for a child to be sent home during the day because of illness or for any other reason, you will be contacted to make the necessary arrangements.

Change of Information and Change of Routine

Please inform the school office of any changes in the home, business, caregiver or emergency contact telephone numbers for your child. Let us know of any other changes in pertinent information, e.g. custody, health. It is essential that we have accurate, up-to-date information in case of an unexpected emergency.
