Student absence reporting – new feature!

Our school is now using online attendance in classrooms.  Parents/guardians can use the “Report an Absence” feature in Edsby to notify the school of any absences. Attendance is important to student success. However, if your child is going to be absent, it is important to let the school know as soon as possible for the safety and security of your child.  Learn more about using Edsby to report an absence.

You may still call in to our attendance hotline via 905-473-0110 and press 1 when prompted to report an absence. Please use with the phone line or the Edsby site to report absences only as messages left on staff voicemail or in student agendas may not be retrieved in time for our Safe Arrivals program.

Wishing everyone the best for March Break

We wish all our families the very best for the upcoming March Break. We look forward to the work we will engage in after the break which will include our March Mathness night on March 28th, our Welcome to Kindergarten evening scheduled for April 26th and our Mingle At Munsch evening event on May 9th.
