    The school believes there is a strong connection between students’ success in school and their attendance. Therefore, we have in place an attendance policy that has as its foundation that students must be here to succeed.

    Students who are absent from school should have their parent/guardian call the school’s 24-hour attendance voice mail, 541-8300. Parent/guardians are to identify themselves, give the student’s name and the reason for the absence. For absences that are not reported, our vice principals will be calling the parent/guardian to inquire about the absence. For any remaining unexcused absences written excuses will be accepted in the office. They should be given directly to the attendance administrative assistant.

    Period attendance is taken at the beginning of each class and homeroom period.

    When a student is going to miss class time (but not a full day) the school needs to be given this information. Parents/guardians are asked to provide this information to the office in one the following ways:

    • If your student is arriving to school late, please bring your child to the main administrative office and complete the required information on the sign-in or sign-out form.
    • If your student is leaving school early, please come to the office and complete the required information and we will page your student to the office to meet you.
    • Provide the office with a note signed by the parent/guardian or a note signed by a physician indicating the time and reason for absence – this must be attached give to office staff at the time of sign in/sign out..
    • Contact the attendance line (541-8300) in advance giving verbal permission and indicating the time and reason from absence.


    Please note that in every case students must fill out the required information in the office.


    • Teachers record lates through PowerSchool attendance at the beginning of each class.
    • Students who are late for class must go to the main office and obtain a late slip and sign in.
    • Teachers should be ready to start class on time and whenever possible be standing at the door to greet students.
    • After a student has been late for a teacher’s class on two or three occasions the teacher should discuss the issue with the student and make contact with the parent/guardian.
    • Continued disruption to the class by arriving late will be reported to the office on a discipline referral form.


    • Each time a student is referred to the office for any reason, their tardy totals may be examined and used as a factor in deciding on consequences.
    • Students have to understand that tardies are a major disruption to the class.
    • Administration and teachers who may have caused a student to be late give the student a slip to take to their next teacher.


    • Daily attendance will be taken each class.
    • All daily attendance is available on the Parent and Student PowerSchool Portal.
    • Parents will recieve a nightly phone call for any unexcused absences that day. This is to remnd parents to call in the excuse or to indicate that   their student is not excused from class(es).
    • All period attendance data is included on report cards.

    Park View Courses

    At Park View Education Centre we believe in providing a wide variety of opportunities for students.  This is reflected in the number of course options we offer.  The Department of Education, in an effort to prepare students for the 21st century, has also promoted many new and exciting courses and programs.  The challenge for any high school is to sustain a minimum number of students in each of their classes.  For many specialty courses, only one section or class is offered.  This creates scheduling difficulties when other courses are offered in the same block of time.  Park View’s enrollment has been on the decline since 2002.  This impacts our ability to sustain some courses.

    It is not possible for us to offer every course that is included in the course book.  Final decisions on  this year’s course offerings is primarily determined by the number of students selecting the course at the time of spring registration.

    It is important that students select courses carefully and with consideration to their graduation requirements, post secondary plans, personal interests and abilities.  We strongly encourage all students to consult with a guidance counsellor when making their final decisions.

    Students will be contacted if a course (or courses) they have selected is not offered.  They will be given the opportunity to select alternate courses.

    For a complete description of all courses, please consult the Course Handbook - 2012-2013 in the Departments Tab under Counselling Centre/Courses.
