Attendance

Regular and punctual attendance by each student is fundamental to success at Delta Secondary School.  Students are expected to be in class, punctually, unless there is a justifiable reason for being absent.Students and parents should be aware of the following procedures:

  1. Attendance is taken in each class and is reported to the office throughout the day.  Students who are late but arrive before the end of period one must report directly to their period one class.
  2. If a student is to be absent from school, parents should contact the school by telephone or email on the day of the absence or before.
  3. Parents can check on parent connect for students' absences.
  4. Students requesting early dismissal for an appointment must present a written reason to the teacher, then present the note again at the office to sign out.  Parents may also phone into the office and request an early dismissal.  Students leaving classes or school without permission are considered to be truant.  Repeated truancies may lead to suspension from school.
