GWS-School Calendar


Extended Absences from School

If your student will be away from school for 3 or more days, they will need to complete and hand in an Extended Absence Form.

If the absence will be occurring during protected time (Dec 20, 2018 - Jan 23, 2019 or May 30 - Jun 19, 2019), students will need to complete and hand in the Requested Student Absence Due to Illness or Extenuating Circumstances During Performance Tasks or Examinations Form.

Hard copies of both of these forms can be picked up in the main office at any time.
