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.

Messenger, absences can be reported using the SchoolMessenger app on
your mobile device (iOS or Android), on the web, or by calling the
