Attendance Line: 403-777 6950 ext. 1
Parents are asked to report student absences or lates by email or telephone if your child is ill or will be absent due to a medical appointment:
- Email: OSGAttend@cbe.ab.ca.
Our email account is checked 15 minutes after bell time each morning and afternoon.
- Telephone: 403-777-6950 and press 1 to leave a message.
- Child’s full name (spell it please)
- Child’s homeroom number/teacher
- The reason for their absence
Our school voicemail system will contact parents/guardians when a student is absent and the school has not yet been notified. SchoolMessenger is an automated system that acts on the information recorded in our student files, and will call contacts to ensure student safety and that parents/guardians are aware that a student is absent from school.
We believe punctuality is an important component of building character. We want to optimize learning time by using every minute of the day. Students that arrive even a few minutes late are disruptive to learning for all. We ask parents to ensure that students arrive on time.
Being late for class is a significant disruption for other learners. It also means the late student is missing out on important learning, setting the direction for the day. Let’s aim to reduce the number of lates to almost zero. Thank you for your support in this matter.
