When reporting an absence through this method, please use the email addresses we have on file with your contact information. This will reduce the number of follow up calls we may have to make. You can still leave a message on our voice mail box between the hours of 4:00 pm and 8:00 am, email your child’s teacher (please also send to either email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org) in case the teacher is absent that day.

The elementary milk program will not run until further notice.
Please note that school fees are due. Check your PowerSchool account for any money outstanding as soon as possible.
