Excusing student absences

Download Available:
Extended Absence, Student Forms

If your son is going to miss any school time for some other reason (e.g. illness, medical appointment, non-school tournament), please contact the attendance line at 416-488-1125, ext. 2219 or usattendance@ucc.on.ca, preferably before the absence occurs. If his absence is going to be for four or more consecutive school days, then please have him complete the “extended absence, student forms” before he leaves (please see attached.)

If a boy at any grade level is absent for any period of time during a school day for which an excuse has not been provided, an automated absence notification will be sent to the parent/guardian’s preferred email address requesting timely attention. While erroneous emails are rare, they sometimes do occur and we apologize in advance for any inconvenience they may cause.

Punctual attendance to all classes, assemblies, house meetings and advising sessions is expected of all our students, understanding they’ll sometimes miss school for our co-curricular activities, field trips and authorized school functions. Thank you, as always, for your understanding and support.

Dean of Students
