Student Handbook-Weekly Focus-Attendance

Rudolph Hennig is excited to welcome our students to school each and every day! Studies show that learning and academic achievement is directly connected with consistent attendance in school. Additionally, the habit of regular attendance helps to prepare our students for life beyond school in the world of work.

Attendance will be taken at the beginning of every class throughout the day. Attendance information can be accessed by parents in the PowerSchool Parent Portal. If a student is going to be absent on a particular day, parents are requested to phone or email the school before 9:00 a.m. We will phone and email the parents and guardians of those students whose absences have not been reported to the office.

Students are encouraged to reach out to their teachers when away, or when they return to catch up on any missed learning.

Parents are expected to inform the office of a student's absence prior to the start of the

school day. Please phone (780) 998-2216 or email general.rhj@eips.ca with the absence information. You can also access our Attendance email from the contact tab on our website at http://rudolphhennig.ca/contact.

Bell Schedule

Classes start at 8:30 each day.

Doors open at 8:00 AM.

Download the SchoolMessenger App

Rudolph Hennig and the Division use the SchoolMessenger platform for communicating with families—through both phone and email. Be sure to add communications@eips.ca and rhj.general@eips.ca to your safe sender list to avoid having important messages funneled into your junk mail folder.

You can directly manage your phone and email subscription preferences through SchoolMessenger. Simply log in to your account—or create one if you don’t already have one—and select the message types you’d like to receive to each phone number and email address on file.

The easiest way to stay connected is to download the SchoolMessenger app. Get the latest updates direct to your mobile device and enable push notifications to never miss a message. Families can also check back on past messages—for up to 30 days—directly in the app rather than searching to find an old message buried in your inbox. Download the SchoolMessenger app from the App Store or Google Play today

Bus Apps

Download these bus apps for a successful ride!

Have a child taking the bus this school year? Download the following apps to stay up to date with all the busing information you’ll need throughout the year.

Bus Status

A new version of the Bus Status app is available: Bus Status 4. The app provides the same features and functionality as before, but faster and more reliable for users. Families who previously used the Bus Status 3 app will need to download the new version from the App Store or Google Play. You won’t be able to update directly from one version to the next. New users can download Bus Status 4 directly now.

Through the Bus Status app, families can access information about buses that are running late or cancelled throughout the year. Simply save your child’s bus routes as favourites and turn on push notifications to stay up to date.

Refer to the Bus Status: Frequently Asked Questions for more information about the update, and plan to download the new version now.

Ride 360

The Traversa Ride 360 website and app enable parents and students to access their own secure data for bus stop location, route and pickup time. With Division buses equipped with GPS hardware, Ride 360 uses GPS geolocation to let users know when to expect their bus each day. Parents and students log in with their own information to access their specific routing information and details.

Ride 360 will be updated in the coming year. Families are encouraged to download the current Ride 360 app from the App Store or Google Play for the start of the school year and set up their account. When the update takes place, login information will seamlessly roll over to the updated app.

Refer to additional instructions and the tutorial video on the Division website for more details about setting up your Ride 360 profile.

For more information about transportation services, refer to the Student Transportation section of the EIPS website.
