Attendance Line: 403-777-8300 option 1

If your child will be absent, please phone the school at  in the morning before 8:35 AM. The school is required to contact parents at home or work, if a child is absent and we have not been informed of the absence.

Outside of school hours, absence information can be left on the school’s voicemail. Please leave the following information:

  • Name of Student
  • Grade
  • Teacher/Team
  • Reason For Absence or Late
  • Length of Absence

The classroom teacher does attendance checks every morning and an attendance record is sent to the office. At Dr. Oakley School, the staff will attempt to establish the reason for the absence and record it in our record system. All late students, regardless of the reason, must sign-in at the main office prior to joining their class.

Regular school attendance is essential to student learning. It is our goal to ensure the safety of your child by closely monitoring attendance. All students are expected to be at school unless school personnel have been notified otherwise.

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.​​​​
