The school shares the belief of the Board of NLSD that the goals of education can be met only through regular attendance. Where a pupil is not attending regularly our policy will be applied and the procedures in place will be followed. A problem-solving approach and the principles of consistency, fairness, and flexibility will be used throughout the process.
Every pupil shall attend school regularly (Education Act , Section 156) except as provided for in the exceptions (Education Act , Section 157) and the exemptions from compulsory attendance (NLSD Policy H-15).
*Parents and guardians are expected to notify the school regarding student absence.
