Attendance Line: 403-777-7187 ext. 1.

Please phone the office at the number above and leave a message on the absence line, if your child will not be at school. If you forget to call the school to report your child’s absence, the secretary will attempt to reach you. Attempting to contact parents is time consuming for the office staff so your efforts to phone the day before, or morning of, an absence is important and appreciated.

Lates & Absences

Occasionally students are late for school for planned or unintended reasons. It is very important that students maintain punctual attendance habits as much as possible. These positive attendance habits promote academic success and will serve them well throughout their lives.

We expect that students attend school every day unless they are sick or have& appointments that cannot be scheduled outside school time. We do not recommend that students take extended absences in the middle of the school year. It is recommended that families plan extended leaves during winter, spring, or summer break; thereby ensuring students’ educational experiences are not interrupted. Homework is not provided for students on extended vacations during school time.

Recess

All students are encouraged to participate in outdoor activities. Exceptions are made when, in the opinion of the administration, the weather conditions are extreme. Please make certain your children are dressed for the weather!

Attendance in MyCBE / PowerSchool

Our student information system, MyCBE / PowerSchool provides parents and students with access to detailed attendance information. For help creating an account or signing in, please visit Technical Support for Students & Parents.

Attendance records are available in Grades and Attendance or Attendance History. Common attendance codes are:

  • (_) =Present
  • A = Absent
  • L = Late
  • IL = Illness
  • AP = Absent - Parent Called
  • LVE = Leave Early
  • MA = Appointment

A legend of all the attendance codes are available at the bottom of the attendance charts in PowerSchool. To discuss any discrepancies, please contact the school office.

Attendance Expectations at the CBE

We believe there is a strong correlation between attendance and effective education. The CBE Administrative Regulation 6020 - Attendance of Students​ regulation applies to all of our students, and outlines the responsibilities for students, parents and school staff.​​​​​​​​
