General Procedures

Newsletters: Our Communication Bridge

Our regular school newsletters and frequent updates are the most reliable form of information IF the newsletter reaches home. Please try to check your child's bag on the last Friday of each month for our newsletters, and read them together to review and anticipate the happenings at our school. Our Community School also provides a calendar to families each September with important dates pre-marked.

School Absence

Each morning our Call Back volunteer program verifies all unaccounted for student absences by telephone. Your cooperation in notifying the school is appreciated. You may call in student absences to the Community School Office at 604-487-9925, or send a written message to the school with a sibling. If your child must leave the school during the day please ask the secretary to use the "sign-out" book in the office to record the time and reason. Please Ensure All Emergency Contact Names And Numbers Are Up To Date. While most absences are unavoidable, please be aware of the connection between good attendance and school achievement.

Prolonged Absence

When a student is hospitalized or confined to home for a prolonged period of time, the services of a home/hospital teacher may be available. Please contact the school office to take advantage of this service.

School Closure

In the event of heavy snow or power failure, please listen to local radio station AM 1280 (CHQB) or FM 97.2 (The Eagle) for information on school closures.


After school Daycare is available through the Community School Office. Please call 604-487-9925 for more information on this program.

Lost and Found

These many items are stored on the shelves in the main hall across from the office.To lessen loss please make sure your child's name is clearly marked on ALL school items. Please encourage your child to check for lost items before replacing them, at least once a term. We have a "Lost and Found Parade" once a month to reunite lost items with their owners. At the end of each term the remaining items are donated to a charity.
