The REPORTING STUDENT ABSENCE SYSTEM:
This year all schools will continue to use our new system for reporting student absences – you will be able to report future absences using an app, website, or toll-free phone number. More info can be found at http://www.hrce.ca/SafeArrival if you haven’t already signed up for it last year.
LUNCH HOUR / OFF PROPERTY FOR GRADE 7, 8 AND 9 STUDENTS:
We are very lucky to have a cafeteria at this school. The menus and information about payment, ordering, etc. are found on our website under the cafeteria link! https://rms.hrce.ca/rms/general-information/cafeteria-services-chartwells
Grade 7, 8 and 9 students will once again be allowed to go off property at lunch WITH PARENT PERMISSION. We will be sending out permission forms for Grade 7/8/9 parents only regarding the permission form and the info they need about allowing their children off property. Off Property permission will begin September 11th, with signed permission forms. Permission to leave school property is a privilege and a responsibility, not a right. Students are expected to be good neighbors, and responsible students during any time off school property.
