Attendance Policy



School 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?
If 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?
If 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.

Automated Attendance Calling Service
Every evening at 6:00 pm, the School Division's automated robo-call system 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 Portal.
