Student Attendance

Daily attendance for students is managed through our SchoolMessenger online system.

SchoolMessenger is the application for student attendance and notifications from the school, please sign up if you have not already. This application is used to report all absences from school as well as late arrivals and early departures. You can report using the app on your smartphone (recommended) or by calling 1-877-409-6310.


Please note that the attendance system does contact parents/guardians during 1st period when a student is away from school and the absence/late arrival has not been reported through the SchoolMessenger system. There is a second communication sent to parents in the evening for any unexplained absences throughout the school day.


If students are arriving late to school, they should proceed directly to their class and the teacher will update the attendance to reflect the late arrival (students do not come to sign in at the main office). If students are signing out early with parent/guardian permission, they will be dismissed directly from their class. Please remember to enter the early departure through SchoolMessenger so your student’s teacher will see that they have permission to leave at the appropriate time.


If you have any trouble connecting to the SchoolMessenger system, or if you need any clarification on how our attendance system works, please contact the main office so that we can assist you.

Extended Absences

If your student will be away from school for more than 3 consecutive days, they will need to complete and hand in an Extended Absence Form to the office 2 weeks prior to the first day of absence.

Hard copies of this form can be picked up in the main office at any time.
