Important Dates

We follow the CBE Traditional Calendar. The calendar sets common start and end days, non-instructional days and holidays. For our school’s additional non-instructional days, late entries, early dismissal days and events, see our school calendar page.


First Day of Classes

Our first day of classes is Tuesday, September 3, 2019. Morning supervision will start at 8:25 AM. At that time, teachers and administrators will be on the playground to meet students, parents/guardians, and other caregivers. 

Kindergarten

Kindergarten classes begin on Tuesday, September 3 and Wednesday, September, 4, 2019.  On these days we will follow a staggered entry procedure, meaning that half the Kindergarten students will attend on the 3rd, and the second half on the 4th.  This procedure allows for closer supervision for our kinders on their first day of school.  On Sept. 5th all students will attend together.  

Please watch for an email from your Kindergarten teacher explaining which day your child will attend.  Kindergarten drop off and pick up location will be at the front entrance on Chaparral Drive.

Do You Have a MyCBE / PowerSchool Parent Account?

Parents who have not already done so, must create an account in MyCBE / PowerSchool to:

  • Pay fees or apply for a waiver

  • Register for transportation and noon supervision

  • View student progress

To create a new account, go to www.cbe.ab.ca/mycbe and click on Create Parent Account. You will need to have your child(ren)’s CBE Student ID Number and use your email on file at the school.​

Fees and Waivers

School fees will be charged to families after the start of the school year in September and October. Online fee payment is the simplest and most convenient way to pay school fees. Parents can use their online account to pay fees or apply for a waiver at: www.cbe.ab.ca/mycbe.

You can find more information on the CBE school fees and waivers​ page.​​​​​​​

Yellow School Bus Tra​nsportation

Yellow school bus routes for the 2019-20 school year are created over the summer and based on the addresses submitted before the pre-registration deadline in May. While CBE Transportation continues to accept pre-registrations, these will not be considered until route changes are done after Thanksgiving.

Yellow school bus route maps are posted on the CBE website: www.cbe.ab.ca/busstop

In October, a confirmation email will be sent to all parents/guardians who have submitted a pre-registration, if the parent/guardian has subscribed to receive messages. It will include transportation fee information (if applicable) and payment options (if applicable). Families can cancel their pre-registration with no financial penalty using MyCBE / PowerSchool by Oct. 31, 2019.

More information about 2019-20 transportation service levels and proposed fees are posted on the CBE website.

Conditional riders can also register using MyCBE / PowerSchool. Applications will be considered after eligible riders registrations have been processed.​​​

Further Inform​ation

We look forward to a great year ahead. If you have any questions that we haven’t addressed here, please contact the school.
