The ministry requires us to keep accurate attendance records and as such, we have made some revisions to our attendance policies that should be noted. When your son is absent or late for any reason it is necessary to provide us with documentation for that absence. If you would prefer to provide us with written documentation, please send the note with your son when he returns to school.
It is absolutely imperative to have your son sign in and out whenever he is arriving late or leaving throughout the school day. This assures that attendance records are accurate as well as providing us with a record so that we can keep track of all students' comings and goings.
All cases of illness and injury must be reported to the Student Health Centre. The nurse will contact parents or guardians if students are to be sent home and give the student a sick leave slip. This slip is then handed in to the front desk when the student signs out of the school. The nurse will then countersign, giving the student authority to go home and inform staff of his absence.
If Boarding Students are ill and need to return to the residence, the Senior School nurse will contact the Residence Nurse and the boy will walk back or be picked up at the nurse's discretion. Sign-out book procedures are the same as for day students. Students who are off-games for medical reasons or due to appointments must have a note from parents/guardians or the nurse. Boarders must have all notes from home or their doctors co-signed by the nurse.
