Attendance Line: 403-777-6250 ext. 1.

Regular Attendance

Any time your child is going to be absent or late, please notify the school office at the number above. On the attendance line you can leave your name, your child ’s name, their room number and the reason for their absence. If students are going to be away more than one day, please indicate the duration of the absence. 

Regular attendance and being on time for school is a very important aspect of your child’s educational program. If a child is absent and we do not receive a phone call from an adult, the school will attempt to contact the parents. If your child is late, they must sign in at the office and get a late slip.

Leaving Early / Illness at School

If you are picking up a student early (e.g. for an appointment), please come to the main office and record the early departure in the Student Sign-Out book located on the front desk. If your child becomes ill at school, they may rest for a brief time in the nurse’s office until they are deemed able to go back to class.

If the child is too ill to stay at school, parents will be contacted and they will be responsible for making arrangements to have someone pick up the student. If someone other than the parent is to pick up the child, please inform the school. Learn more on our Illness and Medical page

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.​​​​
