attendance is a critical factor to a productive and successful school
career. All schools in St. James-Assiniboia actively promote and
encourage 100 per cent attendance for all our students. We encourage
parents/caregivers to be actively involved in promoting their child’s
attendance at school.
What if my child will be absent from school?
your child is sick and will be absent from school, we request that
parents contact the school by phone to advise the office of their
child's absence. If you are calling outside of normal office hours,
please leave a message on the school's answering machine.
What if my child will be arriving late for school?
your child will be arriving late for school, we once again request that
parents contact the school by phone to advise the office that their
child will be arriving late.

will call home to ensure parents are apprised of any unexcused absences
recorded throughout the day for their son or daughter. Additionally,
parents can also check on attendance using the PowerSchool Parent
