Black Mountain Elementary School encourages the development of responsibility and self-discipline in students which will result in personal rewards of self-reliance, dignity, and a sense of self-worth. Part of this development stems from regular attendance. At Black Mountain Elementary School we have a code of conduct that states, "Students will attend school on a daily basis". Arriving late results in your children becoming behind in their class work and missed valuable instruction. Even a few minutes a day, adds up to substantial class time being missed over the year as well as additional teaching time lost for all students in the classroom while the teacher re-explains what is happening that morning. Please make sure your child is on time, for their benefit and for all the other students in class. If there is something the school can do to help remedy this, please let us know at 250-765-1955 as we are here to support your children's learning.
