Reporting Student Absences and Lates as of Monday, June 25th, 2018
We are pleased to let you know that we have a new telephone attendance reporting system. This is in addition to online absence reporting through Edsby.
Regular and punctual attendance affects school success and is expected of all students. You are responsible for notifying the school before the bell time if your child will be absent or late. We have a safe arrivals program so that we can account for the whereabouts of absent students if the absence has not been reported prior to bell time.
To enhance our safe arrivals system, this new telephone system will reduce the time it takes to verify student attendance. It will also confirm student absences that have not been verified by automatically calling you.
You will no longer report absences to the Synrevoice/SchoolConnects system.
Starting from Monday, June 25th, if your child is going to be absent or late, please let us know before bell time by:
- Calling the school’s main phone line at (905) 707-6488 and select the option “To report a student absence or late.”
2. Logging in to Edsby and using the “Report an Absence” feature. For more information on reporting your child’s attendance through Edsby, please see the online video tutorial to learn more (bit.ly/edsbyabsence).
Long-term absences or absences beyond the following day can be reported through Edsby or by contacting the school or your child’s teacher. If your child will miss more than 5 consecutive days of school, you must complete the Request for Vacation Form available through the school.
Thank you for your cooperation as we continue to ensure the safety of our students. Please feel free to contact us with any further questions.

Arin Otis, Principal
