Regular attendance and punctuality are important. Excessive absences result in poor school work. When an absence is necessary, the parent or guardian should notify the school. If this is not done, the school secretary will phone home to determine the whereabouts of the student. Notes are required for early dismissal and after an illness (unless you call). For the safety of your children, no children will be released without a written request or a prior phone call. They will also not be released to anyone not listed as a contact for them so please make sure we have current contact information on file at the school. If you have an absence to report please use the SchoolMessenger system.

As part of our Safe Schools Plan, there is a sign out book at the office. When a child is brought in to school after 8:55 AM and or picked up prior to 3:25 PM, the adult accompanying the child must sign the demit book. If your child is permitted to leave the school at lunch it is important that they have a note from a parent and that they sign out and then in again at the office. When dropping off your child for school at the start of the school day or picking them up at the end of the school day please meet them outside at their designated door.

For the safety of everyone in our building ALL parents & visitors are REQUIRED to report to the office to sign in and out.

For more information regarding Attendance procedures please visit the "Attendance FAQs" and "Attendance Reporting" pages under the "PARENTS" tab.


If you have questions or concerns about your child, please feel free to phone the school to talk to the teacher or make an appointment to meet with the teacher. As teachers are instructing students, teachers are more accessible between 8:30 and 8:45 a.m. or 3:30 and 3:45 p.m. If teachers are unavailable we will take a message and they will return your call at a convenient time.

To email your child's teacher, please visit the "Contact Us" page under the "SCHOOL" tab.

North Meadows is a TREE NUT/PEANUT SAFE SCHOOL. Tree Nut/Peanut Safe includes all areas inside the building as well as outside the building on school property. Within our school community there are several students who have a potentially life-threatening allergy (anaphylaxis) to foods, predominantly peanuts and tree nuts. Tree nuts include such items as pistachios, walnuts, almonds, cashews, macadamia nuts and all additional nuts grown on trees. The best way to reduce the risk of accidental exposure to these students is to respectfully ask for the cooperation and support of parents and caregivers within this school community. Please do not send peanut butter or products with peanuts/nuts listed in the ingredients, in your child’s lunch. It is also Board Policy to refrain from sending items such as peanut alternative products (such as WOW butter), due to the inability in distinguishing between these products and true peanut products. Your cooperation and understanding are appreciated
Prescription medication cannot be administered at school without an authorization form signed by the physician and parent. These forms are updated each year. Please contact the school immediately if your child requires medication during school hours. The well-being and safety of all students depend on adherence to this Board policy.


North Meadows is a school that promotes responsibility, respect, civility and academic excellence in a safe learning and teaching environment.  A positive school climate exists when all members of the school community feel safe, comfortable, and are accepted.  All students, parents/guardians, teachers and staff members have the right to be safe, and feel safe, in their school community.  With this right comes the responsibility to contribute to a positive school climate.  

Code of Conduct is based on the premise that each individual in the school is responsible for his/her own behaviour and that progressive discipline is a shared responsibility of school staff, as well as parents and guardians.  The North Meadows Code of Conduct includes the provincial standards of behaviour.  It specifies mandatory consequences for student actions that do not comply with these standards.  The standards of behaviour apply not only to students, but also to all school members, i.e. individuals involved in the school system -- teachers, staff, parents/guardians, volunteers, community members-- whether they are on school property, on school buses or at school-authorized events or activities, or in other circumstances that could have an impact on the school climate.

Responsible citizenship involves appropriate participation in the civic life of the school community.  Active and engaged citizens are aware of their rights, but more importantly, they accept responsibility for protecting their rights and the rights of others. In the process of becoming good citizens, students are expected to learn the importance of adhering to the rules and regulations, which have been adopted for the benefit of all individuals. We expect our students to take responsibility for themselves and for their actions.

 The school cannot accept responsibility for items brought from home. Therefore students should leave valuable items at home. A lost and found box is located in the lower foyer near the front doors, as well as the upper foyer. Parents and students are invited to check this box at your convenience for lost items. Labelling clothing and shoes does help items be returned to their rightful owner.
