Lunch Supervision  

Our school provides for the supervision of grade 1-6 students during their designated lunch. Note – lunch supervision is a 4 day/week program.

For more information visit our Lunch Supervision page.

Litterless lunch

Pack it in, pack it out! Students will bring home any garbage, compost or recycling in their lunchbox. Reusable containers are strongly encouraged. This allows supervisors to clean and sanitize desks and classrooms more quickly and effectively. More info to come.

Teachers will contact families on Wednesday August 30, 2023 to welcome them to their class and to note any first-day-of-school procedures (e.g. Meeting places, what to bring, etc).

Messages are sent to the parent contacts on file at your school.​​

To ensure you receive important information from your child’s school and the Calgary Board of Education, subscribe to school messages.​

​​Fees and Waivers

School fees will be charged to families starting in 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 2023-24 school year are created o​ver the summer and based on the addresses submitted before the pre-registration deadline in June. Transportation continues to accept registrations after the deadline; however, students are added to the closest existing stop with available space. Processing times could be up to six weeks at the beginning of the school year due to volume.

More information about 2023-24 transportation service levels and proposed fees are posted on the CBE website.

Your bus stop location and time will be available in your MyCBE account by mid-August.

Conditional riders can also register using MyCBE. Applications will be considered after eligible riders registrations have been processed. Should routes change or if qualified students are added to a route and the bus becomes overcrowded, conditional riders may be removed to accommodate these changes.​

Learn more about transportation on the CBE website.
