Office Hours

The main office is open Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 8:30 am to 3:30 pm.
If you would like to reach a facilitator, teacher or administrator outside of these hours, please be sure to book an appointment in advance.

Families who would like to use designated school spaces while students are in class are welcome to do so. The Learning Commons houses our parent-run library, and is a space where students and adults can find a quiet area to work, study or read. The Flex Room is an empty classroom space that can be utilized by families when it is not otherwise booked for a school event or student learning activity. Please check in with the program administrator for room availability that day. 

Class Schedule – Shared Responsibility Program

Students are welcome to come to school when the front doors open at 9:00 am to use the gym or Learning Commons, under direct parent supervision until 10:00 am when school begins.

Friday

A CBE Home Education School Council Initiative

Friday Activities provide an opportunity for CBE Home Education students to participate in a variety of learning activities with their peers. These activities may supplement the physical education and art goals in student home learning plans; however, they will not meet all home learning requirements or take the place of parent instruction. Activities are taught by
volunteer parents and CBE teachers.

Who | Any CBE Home Education parent directed or blended student is welcome to register!
What | Each Friday student rotates through a variety of activities. Students in Grades 1 to 5 participate in activities such as art, science, and drama (these choices can vary from year to year). Students in Grades 6 to 9 participate in art and physical education.
When | Activities run from 10:00 am to 12:30 pm for 5 classes in the fall and winter semesters.
Where | All activities take place at Windsor Park school.
How | Pre-registration is required. Class size is limited to 16 students. Registration is on a first-come, first-served basis.
Cost | The fee is $25 per student, per semester. Fees may be paid at the main office (cash or credit card) or online through each family’s MyCBE / PowerSchool account.

Concerns & Complaints

We know that the success of your student is dependent on a strong partnership between families and the CBE. If you have a concern, it can usually be addressed at the classroom level. Your first step is to arrange to speak privately with your child’s teacher. If you feel your issue is still unresolved, please contact your principal. If you and the school are unable to find a resolution, please see our Concerns & Complaints​ page for additional information, including the process to contact your Area Director. ​​​​
