Safe Arrival Call-Back

The Safe Arrival Call-Back Program’s goal is to ensure that every Oaklands’ student is ‘safe’ and where they ought to be.

If your child is going to be absent or late, call (250) 595-2444, select “1” to record a student’s absence  and leave a brief message or send an e-mail to We need to know:
1. Your child’s name
2. Your child’s division or teacher’s name
3. One of: Illness, Late arrival, Vacation (with dates) or Appointment

If we don’t receive a message or call, parents will be contacted via e-mail and phone so that we can determine your child is safe. When your child is late arriving, regardless of reason, please be sure they sign in at the office and take a late slip to their teacher.

If you are picking up your child prior to dismissal (2:48 pm), please be sure to sign them out at the office.
