Extended Absences

To maximize student achievement, the loss of learning time during the academic year as a result of vacations or other discretionary reasons should be avoided. With this in mind, parents and students should carefully note the following when considering planned, discretionary absences:

  • Parents/students should discuss the planned absence with the appropriate administrator and teachers.

  • Students are responsible for any work missed during the planned absence.

  • Where possible, students should submit work they will miss prior to the planned absence. Access to the internet (i.e. Google Classroom) may make it possible to stay on top of course work and evaluations.

  • Students are expected to write their final examinations during the scheduled Final Evaluation blocks.

  • Achievement data reveals that students who do not complete and submit ALL their work for feedback (assessment) and grading (evaluation) are likely to have lower final grades, and in some cases put their credit in jeopardy.

  • Some courses may have unique requirements (e.g., courses with labs, technological subjects, courses with a significant performance component such as Physical Education or Drama). Accordingly, it may be difficult to make up all work missed.

Please see the attached form here for the process to report a student's extended absence.

Student Information System

The Student Information System has been designed to allow parents of students under the age of 18, the opportunity to access daily attendance data and credit accumulation information for their student without first having to contact their high school. Data for students who are 18 years or older is not available through this website because of legal restrictions. To discuss the information presented here, or if you believe there is an error in this data, please call your student's school. Your student's OEN (the nine digit number printed on your student's report card) and date of birth are required to access this information.

You can view a student's attendance record at the following website: Attendance Record Website
