Attendance Line: 403-777-6100 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  

An email note is not acceptable for lates/absences. Email communication is only to be used for general correspondence or inquiries requiring a response from our school.

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.

Please ensure the school has a complete list of all emergency contacts and authorized guardians for your child. To make changes or to ensure we have your most current contact information, please contact our office.

Punctuality is Important

Parents are asked to ensure that their children arrive at school on time and enter the school at their designated entrance. Prompt arrival for 9:10 AM is expected for all students (PM K 1:10 PM). This is not only a necessary life skill that students need to learn, but it is important for their learning and is respectful of their class environment. Students who arrive late to class often miss important work related instructions and it is disrupting of all students in the class when someone is late. Parents, please do your part to ensure our students understand that punctuality is important. In the event that a student’s late arrival persists, the school administration will contact those families and work collaboratively to develop a plan for success.

Student Sign-out

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

Extended Absences

If your child will be absent for an extended amount of time or you plan an extended absence for your child, please provide the school with the details of the absence and arrange to meet with administration to discuss the learning impact of this extended absence.

  • (_) =Present

  • L = Late
  • IL = Illness

  • LVE = Leave Early
  • MA = Appointment

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.​​​​
