Attendance Line 403-777-6120  ext. 1.

It is important that you call the school if your child is going to be absent or arriving late.  

Absences

Every child is expected to be in school on all designated school days by the CBE, unless illness or personal reasons make attendance impossible. Parents/guardians are required to phone and leave a message on the attendance line before the start of the day, if a child is going to be absent for any reason. When leaving a message, please clearly speak and/or spell your child’s first and last name, their homeroom number, grade and reason for absence. For security purposes, if you do not contact the office to report an absence, the school will contact you. We appreciate your communication as it helps to keep all our students safe. Learn more about Attendance.

Illness

When children become ill at school, every effort will be made to contact parents/guardians. If parents or an emergency contact cannot be reached, the student will be kept in the office until dismissal. Students who are too ill to fully participate in all school activities (including recess and lunch) should remain at home until they can participate.

Student Medication

The administration of medication is the responsibility of the parent. For medication to be administered at the school, parents are required to sign a Student Health Plan. For the safety of children, it is imperative that parents/guardians indicate on the Student Health Emergency Response Protocol Form any allergies to specific food and/or items in the environment.

Allergies 

If a child has a severe allergy that requires the administration of an Epi-Pen or inhaler, the child must carry the Epi-Pen or inhaler on their person at all times. We are an “Allergy Aware” school which means, by educating the community and ourselves, we will better protect the dignity and personal safety of all our students. In support of this, please send only nut and peanut free snacks.

Parents must indicate any special health concerns on the school registration for their child and are encouraged to ensure classroom teachers are also aware of health issues.
