The Alaqsite’w Gitpu School has updated their attendance policy. Parents and guardians, please take a moment to review the full policy linked below.
Remember that strong attendance at school is key to academic success. If your child is absent from school, you must call or leave a note with their teacher in advance or upon their return. If an excuse for their absence is not provided, the student will be marked as “absent without an excuse”.
The teacher must reach out to the parent after a student is absent for more than 5 days in a row and/or is absent for 5 to 10 days. With continued absenteeism, further action will be taken after 15, 20 and 25 days absent to work towards a solution with the parent. Please refer to the attendance policy on our website for the full procedure.
It is also important to note that students who arrive later than 8:20 are required to report to the office for a late slip. If tardiness becomes habitual, the teacher will first reach out to the parent before referring to the Attendance Intervener.
