Attendance Line: 403-777-6940 ext. 1

Remember to report absences due to illness, appointments, lateness, etc. before school starts by calling us at the number above. We ask that you leave a message, providing the student's name, teacher and reason for absence.

If you child will miss school, please call the school attendance line prior to 7:30 AM. It is essential for the front office, with only one secretary, to be able to listen to the absences when arriving at school and to immediately mark them ill/absent. Taking attendance early and efficiently in the morning is essential to ensuring everyone is accounted for and safely at school.

Teaching children to be punctual is a very important life skill. As working parents we all know how difficult mornings can be, yet it is essential to ensure that children arrive at school on time for a many reasons: The beginning of the day sets the tone for the day. Essential information is shared with students at the beginning of class. If late by 10 or 15 minutes, the child misses these instructions. Arriving late to class disrupts the students who are already engaged in their learning and it forces the teacher to re-explain what is going on to the late student – and if there are 4 students arriving late in one class, the teacher will have to restart 4 times – imagine the time lost! Therefore, we encourage everyone, to make it to school five or 10 minutes earlier in order to arrive on time. We thank you in advance for your support with this. It will make a huge impact in all classes and the office each and every day.

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.​​
