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 tobey.morris@blackgold.ca or sandy.musteca@blackgold.ca) in case the teacher is absent that day.

For the 2020-2021 school year:
  • There will be NO VOLUNTEERING at this time. This, unfortunately, means no hot lunches, microwave days, bake sales, parents coming in to read, and parents coming into the school with their children. 
  • 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.
