Attendance

Attendance Line: 403-777-6259 ext. 1

We would ask that parents phone our attendance line if your child/ren are going to be absent from school. This line is checked twice each day. As a courtesy, we will attempt to contact you if your child is absent and no previous notification was given.
Please leave the following information:

  • Name of student(s)
  • Grade(s)
  • Teacher(s)
  • Reason for absence or lateness
  • Length of absence

Students arriving late to school must report to the office where they will sign in and pick up a “Happy to See You” slip prior to admittance to their class

Picking Up Students For Appointments

When picking up children for appointments, please:

  • If possible, inform the teacher beforehand so that the child is ready 
  • Come to the office so that your child can be called
  • Sign out your child in the register in the office

When picking up lunchroom children during the lunch hour, please come into the school and inform the office staff and sign out your child in the register in the office. For more information, see our Security page.

Holidays, Transfers & Moves

If families are planning to go on holiday or are moving, advance notice to the teacher and office staff is appreciated. Parents are also reminded to keep the office informed of any address or telephone changes that may occur throughout the year.

  • (_) =Present

  • LVE = Leave Early

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.​​​​​​​​
