Attendance Line: 403-777-6267 ext. 1

Regular school attendance and punctuality is required of all students. Parents are requested to inform the school by note or phone the absence line if your child(ren) will be absent or late. We greatly appreciate your support by calling the main office as we are concerned for your child’s safety. If a child is absent and we have not been notified in advance, the office staff will attempt to contact parents at home or work. A note explaining the reason for an absence to a child’s teacher helps in communicating information. Students who arrive to school late must be signed in at the office by a parent or guardian before going to class. Chronically late or absent students may have an attendance improvement plan developed to support them.

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.​​​​

Our "classrooms" look different, but we continue to support student learning. Check out this video for more info. #wearecbe https://t.co/z6XBq4mA3Q

Yesterday we sent a message to all Gr. 10, 11 and 12 families about diploma exams. Diploma exams are cancelled, but under special circumstances, students can request to write a diploma exam. For more info, see info on our website https://t.co/Vt8kke9SuE
