Attendance

Attendance Line: 403-777-7233 ext. 1

If Your Child Will Be Absent

If your child is not at school, please call the office at 403-777-7233.

For safety, please ensure you call the school to report a student's absence or indicate that the student will be late.  We become concerned if your child is not at school and we have not received a message about this.  If a child is absent and we have not been notified in advance, parents will be contacted through School Messenger requesting parents/guardians to connect with the school to confirm the absence.

Arriving Late

All students arriving late should enter through the front doors of the school and report to the office to receive a late slip.  

Frequent Lates/Absences

If a student is frequently late or absent families will be contacted by an administrator in order to develop strategies together to support consistent attendance.

Extended Absences

Extended absences may affect a student's academic progress and are recorded as unexcused in a student's attendance record. Families considering an extended absence are asked to call the school to schedule an appointment with Administration to understand and acknowledge the implications the absence may have on student learning.

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.​​​​​​​​

Friday, Sept 24 is a system-wide non-instructional day so there are no classes for CBE students. Have a safe long weekend and please continue to follow all public health measures #WeAreCBE https://t.co/2BCAzks4jb

Thank you @JackJamesHS for sharing information about the history of Treaty 7 on the anniversary of its signing #WeAreCBE #WeAreAllTreatyPeople https://t.co/QeXj9cNonO

RT @Indigenous_cbe: Today is fall equinox - a time when daylight & nighttime share the sky equally. Today is also Treaty 7 Day - the 144th anniversary of the signing of Treaty 7. The 🌞 & 🌙s equality today teaches us how to honour the treaty...by walking together in equal partnership. #welcomeoko https://t.co/7nUdmGVAVL
