Toronto Catholic District School Board

For Parents
Safe Arrival and Dismissal
By 9:30 a.m. each day, all students must be accounted for.  It is the policy of the Toronto Catholic District School Board that parents are contacted when their child(ren) is/are absent from school, unless school staff are aware of the reason for the absence.
 
Reporting Absences:
Parents/guardians need to call the school as soon as possible to explain when the child will be away, or send a note the day before (e.g. regarding doctor or dentist appointments).  Or, you may call in the evening or in the morning, preferably before 8:30 a.m. to report an absence. Please leave a message for our secretary, Mrs. Robinson, on the school answering machine.
 
After School Dismissal:
When changes to the normal after-school dismissal/pick-up arrangements for your child are made, it is always best to send a signed note ahead of time to inform the teacher. You can also inform staff by calling or coming to the school. Please leave enough time so that we can make everyome aware of the changes.
 
Permission To Leave School Early:
No student is to leave the school unannounced. This is a security issue.  Here are a few guidelines.
·       If your child must leave early during some part of a school day, parents/guardians are asked to send a “signed and dated” note to the child’s teacher, advising her/him of the reason for the early dismissal.
·       If a child is being picked up during school hours, the parent/guardian must come to the school office, so that appropriate arrangements can be made.
·       If a child is being picked up by a designate, rather than the parent/guardian, a note “signed and dated” by the parent/guardian indicating such must be provided to the school.
 
A Couple Of Reminders To Parents 
1) During the winter months the temperature outside can seem quite bitter. Please check the daily weather and ensure that your son or daughter is dressed appropriately for that day.
 
2) If your child is too ill to go outside for recess they are likely too ill to be at school. Please do not send students who are sick with a request that they not go outside. This creates a safety and supervision issue that cannot be accommodated.
