Important Dates

We follow the CBE Traditional Calendar. The calendar sets common start and end days, non-instructional days and holidays. For our school’s additional non-instructional days, late entries, early dismissal days and events, see our school calendar page.


Planning is underway for what the 2020-21 school year will look like for our students, staff and families. The CBE has created an internal task force with representatives from every service unit to lead the planning for different scenarios. All of our decisions will be guided by the advice of the province’s chief medical officer of health and Alberta Education guidelines. The safety and well being of our students and staff will come first in any decisions we make. More information will be provided to families before the first day of classes on Tuesday, Sept. 1, 2020.

School Calendar

We are a school that follows the traditional calendar. To view our school’s calendar, click here. 

School Parking Lot

Please note that the parking lot is not available for visitor/volunteer parking. We ask that you refrain from parking in the parking lot. The parking lot is only accessible to CBE employees as staff members pay for the privilege of accessing assigned parking, and they arrive at various times throughout the day. For safety reasons, DO NOT use the parking lot to drop-off or pick-up children.

Parent Parking & Student Drop-Off

The front of the school (Auburn Bay Avenue) is for bus drop off and student drop off & pick up only.  These areas are clearly marked as NO PARKING.  There is no  parking at all in front of the school.  Should you wish to park and walk your child to their door, please find a parking spot away from the front of the school & away from the school parking lot.

Noon Supervision

Auburn Bay School offers a four-day (Monday – Thursday) noon supervision program for students in Grades 1-4. Students bring their own lunches and are supervised both while they eat lunch and while they play outside. No microwave or hot water services are available.  Registration and fee payment for this program is required. Noon Supervision begins on the first day of school.  Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic the milk program cannot be offered.

Registration Information

Please visit our How to Register page for all registration details and registration forms.

Our school office opens on Thursday, Aug. 27 for new student registration. Office hours are  9:00 – 3:00.  New students to Auburn Bay may be overflowed if the school is full.  Students residing in Auburn Bay and Seton are to register at Auburn Bay School and from there will be designated to our over-flow school Andrew Sibbald if necessary.  Click here for additional information.

Do You Have a MyCBE / PowerSchool Parent Account?

Parents who have not already done so, must create an account in MyCBE / PowerSchool to:

  • Pay fees or apply for a waiver

  • Register for transportation and noon supervision

  • View student progress

To create a new account, go to www.cbe.ab.ca/mycbe and click on Create Parent Account. You will need to have your child(ren)’s CBE Student ID Number and use your email on file at the school.​

Fees and Waivers

School fees will be charged to families after the start of the school year in September and October. Online fee payment is the simplest and most convenient way to pay school fees. Parents can use their online account to pay fees or apply for a waiver at: www.cbe.ab.ca/mycbe.

You can find more information on the CBE school fees and waivers​ page.​​​​​​​

Yellow School Bus Tra​nsportation

Yellow school bus routes for the 2020-21 school year are created over the summer and based on the addresses submitted before the pre-registration deadline in May. While CBE Transportation continues to accept pre-registrations, these will not be considered until route changes are done after Thanksgiving.

Yellow school bus route maps are posted on the CBE website: www.cbe.ab.ca/busstop

In September, a confirmation email will be sent to all parents/guardians who have submitted a pre-registration, if the parent/guardian has subscribed to receive messages. It will include transportation fee information (if applicable) and payment options (if applicable). Families can cancel their pre-registration with no financial penalty using MyCBE / PowerSchool by Sept. 30, 2020.

More information about 2020-21 transportation service levels and proposed fees are posted on the CBE website.

Conditional riders can also register using MyCBE / PowerSchool. Applications will be considered after eligible riders registrations have been processed.​​​​

We look forward to a great year ahead. If you have any questions that we haven’t addressed here, please contact the school.
