Pupil Absences and Illnesses


In accordance with NEWB (National Educational Welfare Board), attendance is recorded daily. If your child misses school, an absence slip must be presented to the class teacher on return to school. If a child misses 20 days or more, the school must notify the NEWB.


Infectious illnesses:
If your child contracts an infectious illness such as chicken pox, it is imperative that you keep your child out of school until they are well enough to return. Please also let the school know immediately what illness the child may have in order for the school to inform other parents. (This includes head lice.)
