Attendance Line: 403-777-8500 ext. 1.

Phone in for Safety

We ask that parents phone our attendance line above if their child is going to be late or absent from school. This line is checked twice each day. As a courtesy, we will attempt to contact you if your child is absent and no previous notification was given. Students arriving late to school must report to the office where they will sign in and pick up a late slip prior to admittance to their class. 

Picking Up Students for Appointments

When picking up children for appointments please:

  • If possible, inform the teacher before so that the child is ready
  • Come to the office so that your child can be called (if they are not waiting)
  • Sign out your child in the register in the office
  • When picking up lunchroom children during the lunch hour, please come into the school, inform the lunchroom supervisor and sign out your child in the register in the office.

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.​​
