Absence or Pick Up From School
Our team asks that all parents and guardians report a student absence, before the start of the school day. This helps us ensure that you have given permission for your child to be absent, and supports our staff in accurately tracking and following up on absences.
Absences can be reported:
- 24 hours a day through our voice message system at 604-517-6030,
- or they can be made any time in advance, or before 9:45 am on the day of the absence, using the form below.
If you are leaving a voicemail message, please state the student’s full name, division, the date of the absence and reason for absence.
Please note: THE BELOW FORM IS BEING INTRODUCED IN STAGES ACROSS THE DISTRICT. THIS FORM IS FOR HERBERT SPENCER ELEMENTARY STUDENTS ONLY. When you hit submit you will be given the option to report an absence at other schools, as they are added. If you are reporting an absence for a sibling at a school not listed here, please use the options provided at that school.
