NOTICE TO STUDENTS AND LEGAL CUSTODIANS OF STUDENTS
REGARDING OUT OF AREA REQUESTS
Under the Simcoe County District School Board procedures (APM A7000), it is possible for students to
apply for and receive permission to attend an out-of-attendance-area school.
Students will be permitted to continue in attendance as long as space is available. They may be required to return
to their home school or transfer to another school when the capacity of the school they are attending has been
reached and space is required for students residing within the attendance areas.
Even with this permission, however, the responsibility for transportation to and from school is borne by the out-of-
attendance-area student and/or parent/guardian.
REPORTING OF STUDENT ABSENCES
Attendance calls to report your child’s absence can now be
emailed directly to firstname.lastname@example.org
