Attendance Rules Summary
It is important for parents to understand the rules on attendance. Children can only be absent for three reasons: illness, doctor's appointment, or bereavement for immediate family. If a student is not in school for any other reason, they are marked as truant. Parents must call the school or write a note to verify an absence. It is also a truancy if a child is late by more than 30 minutes or picked up early by more than 30 minutes without a valid reason.
Please do not plan vacations on school days or to extend a weekend. This is not legal. Your child misses school and learns that schoolwork is not important. We very much want to improve our attendance and our student achievement -- both go together.

Thank You PTA!
Thank you to the PTA for all their wonderful support this year with our family events. It was amazing how much ice cream we served at the ice cream social! The 5th grade promotion ceremony and refreshments were great along with the swim event for 5th graders. The year book was the best ever.
Take Swimming Lessons
GVRD offers a great program of swim lessons at Cunningham Pool on Heartwood Avenue. Most of our 5th graders are not able to pass a swim test when we take them to a pool at the end of the year. As a reminder, drowning is the #2 cause of death for children under 15. It is important that students can swim but also know how to be safe around water. They must always supervised around water.
Spiritwear on Fridays
For school spirit, students are to wear spiritwear T-shirts or our school colors, blue and grey, on Fridays.
In order to register your child at school you must bring your child's birth certificate, shot records, and proof that you reside within our school boundaries. Before the start of the school year, come to the office any time between 8:00 and 3:00. After the start of the year, please avoid coming between 8:45 and 9:30 and 3:10 to 3:40 as these are very busy times for the office.
