Reporting Absences/Lates

To help us keep accurate attendance, we ask that absences and lates be reported to the school prior to 10:00 AM. You can do this by:

We use an automated absence call system so, if absences/lates are not reported by 10:00 AM, a phone call and/or email will automatically go out for all unreported students.

Students Leaving Early

Remember to send a note with your child, indicating the time they are to be dismissed.

  1. The student should show the note to the teacher who has them at the indicated time.
  2. They are then to bring that note to the office, so that they can officially be signed out.
  3. They’ll then wait at the front door for your arrival so that you do not need to come in tothe building, via the locked door.

If you forget to send a note, call the main office line; we will locate your student and send them to the door to meet you. This may take a bit of time.

Extended Absences

To report an extended absence, use the same protocols indicated for daily absences, with start and end dates. It is also important to contact your child’s teachers to convey at least some of this information, so that a plan can be discussed regarding missing work. If the attendance message is not conveyed to the office, you will receive an automated call every day your child is away.

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.

  • 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.​​

The Board Chairs of the four metro school boards have issued a statement asking the Minister of Education to reconsider the Alberta Government’s ban on seclusion rooms (Ministerial Order 006/2019) https://t.co/276eSkXIiP #yycbe https://t.co/T3TH2c98k5
