Typical Day

This timetable applies to a typical day for all students enrolling at Burlington Royal Arts Academy for the Academic / Arts Focused Program. Students will participate in 8 credit classes a school year (4 classes each semester). Academic credits in Math, English, Science, Social Studies, Language, and a wide variety of elective courses are offered.

Many of our students will select 2 arts courses over the course of a school year and declare a ‘major’ arts focus. As our school continues to grow, we look forward to offering evening, weekend and summer credit courses for students.

Attendance Policy:

  • Regular attendance and punctuality is critical to your success at school. Teachers and the administration will monitor attendance closely.
  • If you are planning to be absent i.e.) illness, etc., please phone the school and leave a message. (289 245 1534)
  • If you have been absent from school, bring a note from your parent/guardian (or send an email) stating the date(s) and reason(s) to the office.
  • Parents/guardians may be called when the cause of absence is unknown or needs substantiation.
  • Upon reaching the age of 18, attendance is the responsibility of that student. A valid reason is still required for absence from school. Being 18 does not mean that you can leave school at any time.
  • Students leaving early for an appointment must give a note to the secretary/administration when they arrive at school or before the end of period 1. The student is expected to sign out at the office before leaving for the appointment. An admit to class slip will be provided to the student to give their teacher. Please avoid making appointments during school hours.
  • A student who becomes ill is to report to the office. His/her parent or guardian will be called to give permission to leave school and to sign out.
  • Students must report to classes promptly. If they arrive late for school, they may go to the class directly if they arrive within 10 minutes of the class starting, unless they have a note, or a parent called in with a reason, or the parent/guardian is accompanying the student to school. In those cases, the student should report to the attendance office upon arrival. (Lateness consequences- parent(s) contacted/ early morning sign in 8:30 am / lunch detentions / suspension)
  • Below are the guidelines we follow if attendance becomes an area of concern.
    • If the student misses a class or a day for an invalid reason.
    • If the student during the course of the semester is late more than 5 times.
    • If the student during the course of the semester is absent more than 5 times. (Unless for a valid reason such as illness)
  • DISCIPLINE PROGRESSION – one or more of these consequences could be applied:
    • Interview with Principal
    • Contact parent/guardian
    • Detentions after school (work period)
    • Detentions at lunch (work period)
