Safe Arrival

The Safe Arrival Program is designed to ensure that your children arrive safely at school each day. We appreciate your cooperation in calling the school to let us know that your child will not be attending or will be arriving late (905-876-1121). When you call the school, you will get our automated answering machine. Please clearly state your child’s name, grade, teacher, and the reason and length (if known) of absence.

If we do not receive your call we are concerned about your child. We are required to call home, your workplace or an emergency contact number to verify the whereabouts of your child. Please let the office know if your contact numbers change. If we cannot determine an unexplained absence we will need to determine whether we must call the police department and report the unaccounted absence. Please help us save valuable time and ensure the safety of your child by calling in all absences.

Please note that Ministry requirements pertaining to student absences requires school personnel, including school secretaries, teachers, and school administration, to follow up with parents on prolonged student absences or patterns of frequent absences.
