    We hope that all our families had an enjoyable Winter Break!  The students and staff have settled back into routine and are busy working. 

    BRRRRRRRRRRRR!!  As you know it is cold outside and may stay this way for a while.  Please send your child to school properly dressed as all students are expected to go outside.  Thank you for taking off your boots at the door and helping the hallways stay clean.

    Our January newsletter is not quite ready yet and will be out next week.

    Safe Arrival
    by Diane Atkinson - Monday, 5 December 2016, 1:19 PM

    Starting Tuesday, December 6th all parents are

    asked to please report student absences before

    8:30 am on the day of the absence (you can also

    report absences in advance, if they are known).

    To report an absence you may choose to:

    • call the toll-free # 1-844-350-2647

    • access the following website:

    • download the Synervoice Technologies Inc app

    by searching for SafeArrival School Connects.

    Please choose the reason for your child’s absence

    from school: sick, appointment, family vacation, etc.

    Don’t forget to wait for a confirmation # to ensure

    your child’s absence has been recorded.

    A registration email will be sent to parents in

    advance. These emails are not spam and will contain

    specific parent login information for the system, as

    well as, instructions on how to log in as a parent to

    report your child’s absences.

    If you do not connect with the system by 8:30am on

    the day of your child’s absence from school, and

    when the teacher has completed attendance for

    his/her class, then a report will be dispatched for

    all students absent without a reason. The system

    will then proceed to call home and cell phone

    numbers until you are reached. Each number will be

    called up to 5 times. It is important that your home

    and cell phone numbers, along with email addresses

    are kept current.

    Thank you for your cooperation.
