Attendance Line: 403-777-6510  ext.1 

In the event of student absence, the parent/guardian is asked to call the school and leave a message. Please leave the following information: 

  • name of student(s)
  • grade(s)
  • teacher(s) 
  • reason for absence or lateness
  • length of absence if known  

Attendance will be taken each morning and afternoon, and in cases where the parent/guardian has not informed the school, every effort will be made to contact the parent/guardian to verify the absence.

Students are expected to attend school every day and to be at school on time for classes. If a student is absent, it is the responsibility of the parent/guardian to telephone the school stating the reason for the absence. Students will not be dismissed early without parental notification to the school. Please respect school dismissal times. When a parent comes into the school and requests that their child be dismissed a few minutes early, that request causes a disruption in learning to the whole class, not just to the individual student. For that reason, we are unable to grant such requests unless there is a family emergency at hand.

Student Sign-out

Learn about our student sign-out procedures on our Security page.

Lates & Absences

Students who habitually arrive at school late for class may be expected to make up the lost instruction time after school. In such cases, parents/guardians will be notified.

Please report any changes to a child’s pick-up arrangements to the office by 2:00 PM so that bus attendance can be updated accordingly.

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.​​​​
