Attendance Line: 403-777-8570 ext.1.

Attendance and Lates

In order to ensure that all children arrive at school safely, parents are asked to inform the school whenever their child will be late or absent. Please call our attendance line or send a note in advance, in the case of an appointment or family holidays. If we have not heard from you, our office staff will attempt to contact you at home or at work. All students who arrive late will be required to enter through the main doors, and report to the office for a late slip before proceeding to class.

Family Vacations – Extended Absences

The Alberta School Act requires regular attendance and it is recommended that vacations and extended absences take place during scheduled breaks.

If you are planning to remove your child from school, please contact the school office and the classroom teacher. If the absence is more than one week, we request that parents complete and sign an “Extended Absence” form. Please note that the school cannot grant approval to be absent, but simply records the parental intent to have the student discontinue attendance. While we appreciate that travel provides valuable learning opportunities, we know that extended absences can have an impact on achievement. Most of the learning activities that take place in the classroom cannot be replicated when a child is absent and teachers cannot provide extra programming or homework during extended breaks.

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.​​

It’s the last weekend to pre-register for yellow school bus transportation for next year. Please log into your My CBE/PowerSchool account to apply before Friday, May 31. https://t.co/5WKzXrGLt4 #yycbe #WeAreCBE https://t.co/kmFAYoncFg
