Automated Attendance Call-Out System
Published on Oct 16, 2019 11:36

Beginning October 17th, 2019, St. Marie of the Incarnation Catholic School will begin using an automated call-out system to contact parents when a student is absent from school without an excuse, i.e., a call from a parent informing the school that the student will be absent or arriving late.  If your child’s teacher indicates an absence at the time attendance is taken, our automated system will place a call to the “Home-School Communication” number on file.


If you would like to confirm with the office the number that this new automated system is to call, please contact Ms. Coelho or Ms. Severino in the office: 905-775-3492.


Parents who receive a call will have the option of providing a reason code for their child’s absence, directly through the phone.  Please note, if you are listening to the message on your voicemail, you will have to call the school as the entry option will not work.
