Attendance Line: 403-777-6740 ext. 1.

Please phone us if your child will be absent or late to school. In your message please the leave the following details:

  • Student first and last name 
  • Grade 
  • Teacher and/or Classroom number 
  • How long they will be absent 
  • The reason why 

It is the parents’ responsibility to inform the school of all absences or lates. Unreported absences are recorded to the student’s permanent attendance record as unexcused. Late slips will be issued to students who are late for classes.

Student Absences and Lates

Regular attendance is essential for success in school. Students do their best when they feel connected and engaged in the classroom work and secure in regular routines. Attendance is taken each day for safety and we monitor it monthly to ensure that we are supporting participation in school.

Does it matter if a child is late?

It is important that children arrive on time for school. Regular and punctual attendance is a necessary component of a child's progress. In the classrooms, the beginning of the day is used to set the day's routines. A child can find it difficult to learn and adjust if they have not been adequately oriented to the day’s learning activities. Research on student dropout rates has pointed out that a student who is often absent or late is more likely to drop out of school and not complete their high school diploma.

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.​​​​
