Report a Student Absence

Report a Student Absence

If your child is going to be ABSENT for any reason or will be LATE for school please call the school at 604-517-6080. This is a 24 hour a day voice message system so you can leave a message at any time during the day or night. Please leave the student’s name, division number or teacher’s name and the reason for their absence.  You can also email us at queenelizabeth@sd40.bc.ca.

If your child(ren) is going to be absent from school for one week or more please fill out a long term absence form and return it to the office.

COVID related tracking by Fraser Health

As Fraser Health has transitioned away from contact tracing, they will now be using absentee rates to track what is happening in individual districts, schools and classrooms. Our staff are working hard every day to carefully track attendance and report any instances of unusually high absences.

Here’s what you can do to help us accurately report our attendance anomalies to Fraser Health:

  • Please make sure that if your child is going to be away for any reason that you report the absence, directly to us, as early as possible.
  • When you report the absence, please be clear about reason:
    • If your child is ill (any type of illness), state “illness” as the reason.
    • Please note: if your child has been instructed to self-isolate because they are a confirmed close contact to someone with COVID-19, but are not showing symptoms and have not tested positive themselves, this is NOT AN ILLNESS.
    • If you are keeping your child home for any reason other than an illness (e.g. an appointment, family vacation, out of an abundance of caution or some other “by choice” reason), please clearly specify why your child will be absent.
