When a pupil returns to school, a dated note

from the parent/guardian, explaining the

absence, must be presented to the homeroom

teacher. This must be done for our records

the teacher if a student is to leave school

indicate the reason for and the time of the early

dismissal. Students need to be signed out

arrived at school by shortly after bell time.

We try to notify parents by 9:30 a.m. and

following each nutrition break by 12:30p.m.

and 2:45 p.m. respectively, unless prior

notice has been given about the student’s

















 General School Description

Springbank Public School is in its 54th year of operation as an elementary school. Over the years, it has acquired the reputation for excellence in both academic and social areas; a reputation built on the cooperation between home and school. We have a school of approximately 535 students in grades Junior Kindergarten to Eight. Springbank School has a staff of 49 people. Everyone on staff is dedicated to preserving and enhancing the reputation built on excellence and aim to provide the best educational experiences for our students. We constantly evaluate our effectiveness by  orchestrating activities to help our students develop to their full potential; mastery of facts; development of inquiry and critical thinking skills and the fostering of a positive attitude towards themselves, others and learning in general. The Springbank Advisory Council (SAC) is an organization of parents, community representatives, staff and administration that work collaboratively serving the needs of our students. The SAC meets monthly. Parents are invited to attend the meetings.
