Attendance Line: 403-777-6000 ext. 1.

Regular attendance and punctuality is the responsibility of the parent/guardian. Parents are requested to inform the school by phone or a note when a student will be absent or late. An explanation of the absence is required. If we do not hear from the parent/guardian, the office staff will phone you or your emergency contacts. Chronic absenteeism or lates will be followed up by the principal and referrals made to the attendance officer if appropriate.

Late Arrivals

It is important that students arrive to school on time and be prepared for class. Students who arrive late are asked to report to the office to receive a late slip before going to class, otherwise a phone call will be made to report the student absent. Students will give the late slip to the classroom teacher.

Appointments

Please notify the office when students are required to leave for medical, dental or other appointments. For safety and security, students will not leave the school during instructional time until parents/guardians have signed them out at the office. 

Family Holidays and Extended Leaves

If you are planning on taking your child out of school for 10 instructional days or longer, during the instructional year, parents/guardians are required to meet with the principal. Teachers will not provide assignments to students who will be missing school due to a vacation. Rather, students will be asked to keep a journal of their trip, and will be encouraged to read every day while away.

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.​​​​

RT @mustardseedyyc: Today @CrescentCowboys student Alex and his friends came by The Mustard Seed with bags full of @McDonaldsCanada sandwiches to hand out to those experiencing homelessness! Why did he do this? Because it's his birthday and he wanted to give back. Thank you Alex! @Crackmacs https://t.co/rWYZq2qKyW
