Attendance Line: 403-777-8560 ext. 1

Remember to report absences due to illness, appointments, lateness, etc. before school starts by calling us at the number above. We ask that you leave a message, providing the student's name, teacher and reason for absence.

School Attendance and Punctuality 

Regular school attendance is an important factor in a student’s academic success. Students are expected to attend classes regularly and on time.

Reporting Absences

It is important that parents/guardians contact the school if a child is going to be late or absent. When a child’s absence is “unexcused”, our office staff, in the interest of safety, makes every effort to contact parents. Please note that we are obligated to report excessive unexcused absences to the attendance officer of the CBE.

Extended Absences

Families are requested to notify both the office and their children’s classroom teachers of extended absences prior to their departure. Please provide a letter indicating when your child will be away from school. If families choose to take children out of school for extended periods of time we encourage daily reading, writing and use of online resources for other academic subjects. Teachers are not expected nor required to assemble homework packages for students who have extended absences. When the children return to school, it is the responsibility of parents to ensure their children complete any missed work and assignments.

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:

  • A = Absent-Unexcused
  • IE = Illness-Excused
  • LU = Late-Unexcused
  • 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.​​

All CBE schools and offices are closed tomorrow for Good Friday. Monday is a non-instruction day for students. CBE classes resume on Tuesday April 23. Have a great long weekend. #WeAreCBE https://t.co/HbwqArnxHZ
