Attendance Line: 403-777-6900 ext. 1

Regular attendance is a requirement of being enrolled in school. Consistent attendance punctuality and good work habits are essential for success.

If students are absent for any part of the school day, parents/guardians are expected to call the school’s 24 hour attendance line by 8:45 AM to advise us of the nature of the absence. If an absence or late is not reported, the student will be considered truant and the parents/guardians will be contacted. Willow Park School uses the SchoolMessenger automated call-out system for all unreported absences and lates.

Please contact the school office should you have any concerns. It is the student's responsibility to obtain and complete all of the work missed while absent and to make arrangements complete all work missed. These matters should be looked after as soon as the student returns to school.

Late Arrival/Early Departure

Students are expected to be in the building by the warning bell and seated at their desks and prepared for class at the late bell. If a student arrives at school after the late bell, he/she will have been recorded as being absent and must report to the office for a late slip before he/she is admitted into class. If a student needs to leave school prior to dismissal time, a note signed by his/her parents/guardians must be presented to the office prior to signing out. Students may not go home during school hours unless someone in authority has contacted the office to give permission for them to do so. Prior to leaving, parents/guardians need to sign out their child/children in the office or communicate with office staff to have their child signed out.

Family Vacation/Leave of Absence

Students who will be away from school for a period of one week or longer must complete an Extended Leave of Absence Form, which can be obtained from the office or from the link to the right under 'Resources'. Forms completed by teachers and parents/guardians should be returned to the office, two-weeks prior to the departure date. This allows staff to communicate necessary homework to students and parents/guardians. Students are responsible for any work missed during their absence. Do note that the inquiry based, interactive nature of the work done at Willow Park School means that providing students with a coherent learning program becomes more difficult as the length of an absence increases.

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.​​​​

We’re doing important system maintenance that will make many of our websites unavailable for a short time this evening. The outage is planned for 8 – 10 pm https://t.co/URvTxvTG3i #yycbe #WeAreCBE https://t.co/L57aJqJGkJ

Earlier this week the talented students in the PVA Chamber Choir from @cmhsrams gave a delightful performance before the public board meeting #WeAreCBE https://t.co/q1kAYs8BYQ

Join us for the Board of Trustees public meeting today at noon at the Ed Centre or stream the meeting online https://t.co/ISGJKlRlO8 #yycbe #WeAreCBE https://t.co/tVnRc8mzwk

Thank you @WHLHitmen for your support of our students! All of these bears will find a nice home with a CBE student. And thank you to the volunteers from Crescent Heights High School for your work to organize the bears! #WeAreCBE https://t.co/HPIr5BLYO2

RT @gale_school: Some of our grade 7 students recreated the $20 bill and wrote explanations of the figures and symbols they chose. They’re right on the money! #weareCBE @Area4CBE https://t.co/JsfNbow1GR
