To Report a Student Absent:
Contact the ESS Attendance Office at 613-386-5031 (24 hour automated attendance line) or the school during business hours at 613-386-3054. Please ensure you leave your child's name, reason for absence and if known, date of return.
If a student will be late for school, please call attendance to let us know they will be late and the reason for the lateness. Upon arrival, students must sign in at the Attendance Office.
If a student must leave before the end of the school day, we require parental contact and permission for students under age 18. Send a note with your child for them to bring to the Attendance Office or phone the Attendance Office with the particulars.
In either case, the student should sign out at the Attendance Office before they leave the premises.
Students over 18 may call in an absence for themselves. As well they may sign themselves out of school without parental contact. These students must ensure they go through the Attendance Office to report the absence before they leave.
As well, such students are responsible for ensuring that they are signing out of school for appropriate reasons.
