Student Absence Phone Line
Regular attendance is a key to success in school. Parents/Guardians are asked to phone the school’s Early Warning line at 604-247-COLT (2658) before 9:00 AM if your child is going to be absent or late. Each day, the school will make every effort to call a parent/guardian to confirm a student’s absence from school unless communication is made by the parent/guardian prior to 9:00 AM. Please note, students are not permitted to phone in for themselves.
Attendance confirmations will only be accepted by the student's parents/guardians. When you call, please leave your name and daytime phone number, and provide the following information:
• Student's first and last name, grade and student number
• Brief details about the absence or tardiness (i.e. date, reason and duration of late/absence).
Please note, if your teen needs to leave school early for an appointment, they must sign out at the office before they leave and only with a signed note from a parent or we will phone home to confirm. If students arrive late to school or return after an appointment, they must sign in at the office before going to class. THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT!
