Attendance Line: 403-777-6790 ext. 1

If your child will be late or absent from school, please call the number above. This not only informs us of your child’s safety and whereabouts but also prevents a call from the office confirming your child’s absence. 

Consistent attendance and punctuality are key factors in helping students succeed in academics and feel a sense of belonging and confidence. In addition to affecting each student’s progress, frequent late arrivals are disruptive to the rest of the class.

In the first half hour of each morning, teachers and students discuss the day plan. They begin processes of discovery and exploration and often perform important routines intended to build skills in literacy and numeracy.

It is essential that parents/guardians inform the school if students will be late or absent. If the school is not advised of a late arrival or absence, parents/guardians will be contacted as soon as possible after attendance is taken in the morning and the afternoon to confirm the safety and well-being of the student in question.

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.​​​​
