Attendance

Attendance Line: 403-777-8110 ext. 1.

If your child is ill, has a medical appointment or will be late in arriving to school, please call the school office at the number above. Your child’s safety is of utmost importance; therefore, we require your help and cooperation in verifying all absences and late arrivals.

Students are expected to be punctual and present for all classes unless ill. Excessive absences or lates are referred to school administration and all absences and lates are documented in student files. Students who are late to school for any reason are to report to the office to sign in. An excused late is defined as being late for school because of an appointment, funeral, etc. Missing alarms, accidentally sleeping in, etc. are unexcused lates.     

Students arriving late to class are required to present a late slip to the teacher upon entering the room. Students are then expected to enter the classroom quietly and respectfully and sit down and begin work without disruption to the learning process. Excessive lates and absences will be referred to school administration.

Leaving the School During the Day

Parents must notify the office, either in writing or by phone, when their child needs to leave early for appointments. Parents must also sign out their child at the office. If a student becomes ill at school, they are to come to the office and call a parent from the school phone.

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.​​​​​​​​

What if eserian nakera (Maasai) "And how are the children?" guided our conversations about equity in schools? Can we say "All the children are well." https://t.co/MfyhrFBQc5
