Attendance Line: 403-777-6710 ext. 1

If your child is going to be late or absent, please call the attendance line and slowly and clearly:

  • Spell the child’s first and last name
  • State the reason for the absence
  • Tell us your relationship to the student 

Ensure that you are not using a hands-free device and that the phone you are using is clear of static and noise so that we can understand the message. If we can’t understand your message the student’s absence will be recorded as unexcused. Any unexcused absences will receive a call home notifying parents or guardians of the absence.

Regular attendance contributes to success at school. Occasional absences such as illnesses and appointments are understandable and unavoidable. Consistent punctuality is a shared responsibility of students, parents/guardians, and school staff. Students are expected to attend and arrive on time for school every day. 

Please speak to your children about the importance of being on time, as it is disruptive to their own learning as well as to the entire class with late arrivals. Kids strive best on routine! To ensure you receive attendance messages regarding your child’s late/absences each day, please ensure your contact telephone numbers and email addresses are up to date with the school.

  • MA = Medical Appointment
  • P = Present

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.​​

The Board Chairs of the four metro school boards have issued a statement asking the Minister of Education to reconsider the Alberta Government’s ban on seclusion rooms (Ministerial Order 006/2019) https://t.co/276eSkXIiP #yycbe https://t.co/T3TH2c98k5
