Student safety is of paramount importance at the Vancouver School District.  Ensuring student safety is a shared responsibility. In order to assist schools, we ask parents to notify schools of student absences. If your child will be absent from school, please phone or email the school to report this absence as early as possible. Beginning Oct. 2 parents/guardians are asked to leave a message regarding their child’s absence by:


2. OR CALLING 604-713-5159 ext.58

Messages will be received before the office is open. School offices are busy places: consistently notifying the school in advance of your child’s absence will significantly improve the efficiency and effectiveness of the Safe Arrival Morning Routine.
