If your child is not in attendance and the school has not been made aware of the absence, every effort will be made to contact parents or guardians. Please ensure the school has a complete list of all emergency contacts and authorized guardians for your child.

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.​​​​​​​​

RT @UsihChristopher: Student health is more important than perfect attendance and families are the ultimate decision makers when it comes to whether students attend school or not. If your child will not be attending, please notify the school and the absence will be excused. Thank you!

RT @UsihChristopher: “Parents/guardians of students/children should be informed that there is zero tolerance for children with any respiratory symptoms attending school or child care centres.” - Alberta Education 2020 School Guide #COVID19

RT @yyCBEdu: We continue to take direction from @GoAHealth and at this time they have recommended schools remain open. We have updated the FAQs on our websites for parents and staff. https://t.co/irJxWQ3Gyu
