Attendance Line: 403-777-7187 ext. 1.
Please phone the office at the number above and leave a message on the absence line, if your child will not be at school. If you forget to call the school to report your child’s absence, the secretary will attempt to reach you. Attempting to contact parents is time consuming for the office staff so your efforts to phone the day before, or morning of, an absence is important and appreciated.
Lates & Absences
Occasionally students are late for school for planned or unintended reasons. It is very important that students maintain punctual attendance habits as much as possible. These positive attendance habits promote academic success and will serve them well throughout their lives.
We expect that students attend school every day unless they are sick or have& appointments that cannot be scheduled outside school time. We do not recommend that students take extended absences in the middle of the school year. It is recommended that families plan extended leaves during winter, spring, or summer break; thereby ensuring students’ educational experiences are not interrupted. Homework is not provided for students on extended vacations during school time.
All students are encouraged to participate in outdoor activities. Exceptions are made when, in the opinion of the administration, the weather conditions are extreme. Please make certain your children are dressed for the weather!
