Attendance

24-hour Attendance Line at 403-777-6010, ext. 1

Absences

All students are expected to attend school regularly. If students are ill or will be away at appointments, we ask that the school be phoned before bell time (am and pm) so that teachers and office staff can proceed with their daily attendance check. If no call is received, the school (via SchoolMessenger) will contact your home and work numbers to check on your child’s absence. If you know how long your child will be away, please let us know and we will refrain from calling your home each day.

Lates

Students are expected to be punctual as the amount of time missed adds up over the course of a year and significantly impacts their learning. If a child is late, they must FIRST check in at the office before attending class. Lates are noted on your child’s attendance record. This record is kept in their Official Student Record.

Signing Students Out

Please see our Security page for student sign-out procedures.

Extended Trips

If you are intending to have your child out of school during the course of the school year, for over 5 days you must complete the appropriate CBE forms. If your child is on an extended trip, CBE policy suggests the following:

  • enroll your child in school if you are somewhere for a number of months,
  • have your child keep a written journal of events,
  • spend time with your child reading,
  • and spend a short time each day working on some mathematics practice.

Due to liability issues, teachers do not provide students with work to complete during extended absences. Please see our website for weblinks that you could use during your trip.

Attendance in MyCBE / PowerSchool

Our student information system, MyCBE / PowerSchool provides parents and students with access to detailed attendance information. For help creating an account or signing in, please visit Technical Support for Students & Parents.

Attendance records are available in Grades and Attendance or Attendance History. Common attendance codes are:

  • (_) =Present
  • A = Absent
  • L = Late
  • IL = Illness
  • AP = Absent - Parent Called
  • LVE = Leave Early
  • MA = Appointment

A legend of all the attendance codes are available at the bottom of the attendance charts in PowerSchool. To discuss any discrepancies, please contact the school office.

Attendance Expectations at the CBE

We believe there is a strong correlation between attendance and effective education. The CBE Administrative Regulation 6020 - Attendance of Students​ regulation applies to all of our students, and outlines the responsibilities for students, parents and school staff.​​​​​​​​
