Regular and prompt attendance promotes habits which are important to their success at school, as well as serving them well throughout their life. If your child is unable to attend school for any reason, parents inform the school before 8:15 AM about their child’s absence. Please leave a message on the answering machine or send us an email indicating your child’s name, classroom teacher, grade, the reason for the absence, bus letter (if applicable) and the expected length of absence.

If your child will be late for any reason, a message should be left before 8:15 AM at the above telephone number or email address. Alternatively, a note outlining the absence/late can be sent in advance.

All K – 6 students who arrive at school after the entry bell are to report to the school office to receive a late slip before proceeding to their classroom, even if you called to let us know.

Parents of students who are regularly late or absent will be contacted to resolve the concern

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.​​

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
