Although children should be in school every day, we realize that there are times when this is not possible. Please call the school if your child will be absent for any reason. Please note any changes to your child’s regular afterschool routine in their agenda or notify the school. We also appreciate a phone call if your child has a childhood communicable disease.
With SafeArrival, you are asked to report your child’s absence in advance using any of these 3 convenient methods:
These options are available 24 hours/day, 7 days a week. Future absences can be reported at any time.
In addition, we will use the SchoolMessenger Communicate automated notification system to contact parents whose child is absent when the absence was not reported in advance. The automated notification system will attempt to contact parents at multiple contact points until a reason is submitted for the absence. If our system is unable to reach the designated contacts, office staff will follow up.
If you report your child’s absence in advance using the SafeArrival toll-free number, website or mobile app, you will NOT receive these notifications.
The family portal allows parents to have access to the MyEdBC system where you can view report cards, attendance, demographics, and progress towards graduation.
Common issues with MyEdBC
Reasons why there is a time limit
MyEdBc does not store the report cards. A month before report cards are sent out, the old report cards are wiped cleaned so teachers can start preparing for the next reporting period.
