Parent Responsibilities

It takes a community to raise a child, and to help us meet the learning needs of your child, we ask that parents do the following:

  • Ensure student leaves house with sufficient time to arrive at school on time for class.
  • If driving, drop off students at the front or side of school at least 10 minutes before their class is scheduled to begin.
  • Book appointments for your son/daughter outside of class time.
  • Will provide written notes outlining reasons for absence and/or lates. Alternatively, call the school office (604-864-0011) prior to 8:00 am to inform the school of child’s absence.
  • Will ensure the school has current Parent/Guardian phone contact and email information.
  • Will initiate and maintain regular contact with the school through phone calls and email contact with the staff, attending parent/teacher interviews and school functions, and reviewing school’s website for calendar and general information. rickhansen.sd34.bc.ca
  • Assist in ensuring their child has adequate sleep.
  • Plan holidays to coincide with scheduled school holidays.
