Sign In Procedure At Pineview
For the SAFETY of students and staff, all parents, visitors and volunteers to the school must report to the main office to sign in and acquire a visitor pass. We would like to keep the interruptions to your child’s learning to a minimum. We will be happy to relay messages, lunches etc. to your child should it be necessary. We have a lot of new staff and families at Pineview and even though you may have been at Pineview for a few years and are familiar with the school, you are a stranger to our new students and staff. Please make sure you sign in. Thank you for your co-operation.
Pineview Parking Lot
As we are an all bussed school our parking lot is extremely busy during morning drop off and evening pick up times. In the interest of safety of our children, parents are asked to park their vehicles along Five Side Road and walk their child(ren) across the lot between 8:05 - 8:25 a.m. and 2:55 - 3:25 p.m. Please do not drive into our driveway during these times.
Student Pick Up Area
We have a designated student pickup area at the door by the kindergarten room. The children will only be dismissed from this area once the bell has rung and not before. This area is supervised by a teacher and has a list of students who are regularly picked up. Students who will be occasionally picked up will have a note. Please wait for your child outside the door.
Absence Check / Safe Arrival
In the event that your child should be absent or late please call the attendance line 1-877-409-6310 or go to hdsb.schoolconnects.com. This service is available 24-hours a day and you can record the absence or late at anytime. Your child’s absence or late arrival to school must be reported before 8:40 a.m. on the day of the absence. If you have a planned vacation, or appointments that are coming up, please ensure that you have included this information on the portal as well. Future absences can be left at any time. The absence check program is an important part of Pineview’s Safe Schools Policy.
Students late for school
Students who arrive late for class must report to the office and sign in before proceeding to his/her class.
Leaving During The School Day
You are asked to send a note to the teacher stating the time he/she is to be picked up. If an unexpected dismissal is required, please call the school so that we can get your child ready for you. We will notify your child and have him/her come to the office. We would appreciate you staying in the foyer area to wait for your child’s arrival to limit the interruptions of other learners.
