What are my responsibilities as a parent?
We want students to attend school regularly, but we can’t do it without the support of parents.
As a parent, it is your responsibility to ensure your child attends school regularly and on time. This may include making commitments for your children outside regular school hours, when possible.
When your child is absent, we would expect you to notify the school and provide the reason why, and help your child catch up on missed work.
If a teacher or principal identifies your child’s absenteeism as a concern that will impact their learning, we would expect you to work with the school and community partners, when needed, to help improve your child’s attendance.
