Report an Absence

Regular and punctual attendance is important for academic and social success in school.

We have an absence alert system in operation at Greystone Centennial Middle School. Parents are asked to notify the school office whenever their child will be absent from or arriving late to school.

Should your child be unable to attend school, please call 780-962-0357, email greystone.absence@psd70.ab.ca, or complete and submit the form below to report the absence or late arrival.

If your child is absent and you have not contacted the school, the school will call you after 9am (or 1:30pm if the child is only absent in the afternoon). 

Thank you for using our absence reporting system, as it speeds up our safe arrival program and helps us ensure the safety of all our students. Thank you also for making arrangements to allow for sick students to recover comfortably at home, as we do not have adequate resources to care for them at school.
