Reporting an Absence

For your child’s safety, it is very important that you contact the school if your child will be absent or late for any reason.  Please call 902-885-2777 and extension 1 to report an absence by 8:30am. Leave your name, the student's name and reason for absent (ex:  type of illness and symptoms).   Leaving a message will avoid the school calling home.  The absence line can take calls 24 hours a day.

Attendance will be adjusted the next day for all calls received after 3:00pm.
