​Inform| Transportation

Students who require transportation need to ensure they have registered for the service through their MYCBE account.

Request| Student Forms

Each year, schools have a variety of forms that parents/legal guardians are required to complete, review and update, some of which are paper, and others are online. In the CBE, the forms in an online format (SchoolEngage) are: 

Demographic Verification - 2023-24: This form includes your child's personal information as well as parent / legal guardian contact information.

Citizenship Information Update - 2023-24: This form becomes available if you change your child's citizenship information on the Demographic Verification form. 

Annual Authorization - 2023-24: This form provides consent for school and district use of personal information.

 SchoolEngage is one of the applications found in your MyCBE account. This is the same account that you use to pay fees, view academic information, book school conferences, etc.
If you do not have a MyCBE account, on the MyCBE page click on Create a MyCBE Account. For online help refer to MyCBE - Creating an Account (Includes instructions and a video).

Online forms must be completed thought School Engage. To complete these forms:

  1. Sign into your MyCBE account
  2. Click on the SchoolEngage icon
  3. Select the form
  4. Complete or review and update the form
  5. Click on Submit to send the form electronically to the school
  6. Repeat steps 3-5 for each form

​​Forms that are not found on SchoolEngage will be provided to students on September 1, 2023. It is important to read over, sign and return forms by Thursday September 7, 2023.

Request| Supplies

Please be aware that school supplies are not provided for students in grades 7 through 9. Students should come to school prepared with the necessary supplies to learn. Please refer to the Sansom recommended supply list for further information.

Additional supplies may be required for specific classes. Teachers will provide these lists to their students at the beginning of the course. 

If students run out or lose some of their supplies, they will need to replace them. From time to time, students will be required to purchase additional supplies for projects assigned throughout the year.

Inform| Student Code of Conduct

Clarence Sansom School strives to create a welcoming, caring, respectful and safe learning environment. CBE employs a practice of Progressive Student Discipline. This means a whole school approach that utilizes a continuum of intervention, supports, and consequences to address inappropriate and unacceptable student behaviour and builds upon strategies that promote positive behaviours. When a student is in repeated non-compliance with the CBE Student Code of Conduct, consequences may include suspension; the removal of a student from school, from one or more class periods, courses or education programs/activities. Principals are required to ensure these policies have been communicated to parents.

Please refer to the CBE documents below and discuss with your child at home. 

Update| Away for the Day

Possession and use of personal digital devices is no longer permitted on school property during the school day

If cell phones are brought to the school, they must remain off (or silent) and completely out of view on-site for the school day*

Students who "forget" are warned the first time. The second time we collect the phone for student to pick-up from the main office at the end of the day. The third offense, the parent must pick it up and the phone is not to return to school. Repeat offenders will be sanctioned in line with our existing progressive discipline policy.

Request| Attendance

We believe there is a strong correlation between attendance and effective education. The CBE Administrative Regulation 6020 - Attendance of Students  applies to all students, and outlines the responsibilities for students, parents and school staff. It is the responsibility of parents to ensure compliance with this legal requirement, and the responsibility of schools to ensure that parents are informed promptly when the attendance of a student is not satisfactory.

Parents/Guardians are required to inform the office if their child is going to be absent or late. To report an absence, please call 403-777-7700 ext. 1 any time (24/7). Please state the name of your child, their homeroom and the reason for the absence, and whether the absence will be for the whole day or a portion of the day. Alternatively, you may email the office and cc your child's homeroom teacher. Taking the time to let us know that your child will be absent before school starts helps us to complete attendance accurately and reduces the number of calls that need to be made from the school office. 

Our student information system, MyCBE provides parents, guardians and students with access to detailed attendance information.

Attendance records are available in Grades and Attendance or Attendance History. A legend of all the attendance codes are available at the bottom of the attendance charts. To discuss any discrepancies, please contact the school office.

Inform| 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:

You can find more information on the CBE school fees and waivers  page.

Important Dates

We follow the CBE traditional calendar. The calendar follows common start and end days, non-instructional days and holidays. Our 2023-2024 school specific calendar can be found here.

Attendance/Late Arrivals

Attendance and punctuality are essential in setting up your children for long-term success and planning. Please ensure students arrive at school BEFORE 8:25 am so instruction can begin promptly at 8:30! Students may leave campus at lunch; however, we strongly encourage students to remain at the school to avoid problems in the community and coming back to school late. Our cafeteria will be open and ready for business on September 11, 2023. Stay tuned for more information as it becomes available.
We look forward to working with you and your children for an exciting year full of learning. Should you have any questions please contact the office directly.

Go Scorpions!

Hello, Clarence Sansom Families!

It's amazing how much has changed, including the weather, since the beginning of September!  I have much to share with you so read on for some updates and information about this school year.

 We are thrilled to be back into a routine in which we are working face-to-face, albeit masked, with most of our students.  85% of our families chose to send their students for face-to-face instruction, which means that 15% of our students are working from home in Hub learning.  We have made some staffing changes to adjust to our new circumstances.  At the end of last year we said goodbye to Ms. Miller, Ms. Fisher and Miss Ellie.  We are welcoming back Ms. Grewal, Mr. Shodin and after a long absence, Ms. Mahzer.  We have also brought in Ms. Teja, who is filling in for Mrs. Hillard, and Ms. Sharda, who is filling in for Ms. Boyd.  We have also welcomed three new staff members as part of our Bridges team:  Ms. Hickie; Ms. Turner; and Ms. Abdulkadir.

There are many changes to everyday learning here at Sansom and our staff and students have done exceptionally well with them.  As you are aware, we are using three different entrances to avoid large groups of students moving throughout the hallways together, and we are opening the doors at 8:15.  The limited entry times has exacerbated some concerns we have with traffic and student safety.  Each day we watch parents and guardians put their children and others at risk by making unsafe and frankly, illegal driving decisions.  I cannot stress enough how terrifying it is to see many of you, our parents and guardians, completing illegal u-turns, stopping in the middle of the road to drop off children, driving on the wrong side of the road, parking in bus zones, and speeding through our school zone.  This behaviour is completely unacceptable and we have reported it to our school resource officer.  As the weather changes and we see more wintry conditions, these unsafe practices continue to put our students at risk.  Many students are exiting their vehicles without looking both ways or even looking before crossing the line of traffic.  If you drive your student(s) to school, please leave home a little earlier and consider coming down 24th Avenue to use the turnabout by Douglas Harkness School.  This will allow you to drop off your child curbside, by our gymnasium, and continue your day knowing that you did the right thing to keep your child and other students safe.  Allow me to end this paragraph by thanking those parents and guardians who continue to do the right thing and drop their children off safely.  Hopefully these good choices act as models for everyone!

Another factor relating to school start times and staff and student safety is having students arrive on time.  Students must be in their classroom when the late bell rings at 8:30.  When students are late to school they disrupt the learning in the classroom.  Additionally, COVID-19 safety protocols make their late even more cumbersome as we have to social distance and record each late by hand.  This limits the amount of students we can process at a time.  We know that some absences and lates are unavoidable, which is why we give students two warnings in a 20-day period.  However, after those two warnings, students will serve after-school detentions as a reminder to be on time.  The third late in 20 days is a 20-minute detention and the fourth will be a 30-minute detention, at which time we will contact home to trouble shoot and help families find ways to get their students to school on time.  More than four lates will results in a request for a parent or guardian to come to school for a more detailed look at ways to get the student to school on time.  Detentions will be Tuesday or Thursday after school and will be in the student's cohort classroom.   Again, a thank you to parents and guardians who do their best to get their student(s) to school on time. 

 As many of you have seen or heard, our school was recently put on "watch" status for positive COVID-19 cases.  I admit that I was frustrated to see that the media misrepresented our situation by stating that our positive cases were “likely" transmitted or contracted at school.  To this date, I have not received any information, which confirms this statement.   Many rumours from the community continue to circulate, and I can assure you that when parents call to clarify the facts, not one rumour has turned out to be true!  This is something that we stress to students when their cohort returns from a period of isolation.  Rumours and gossip do not serve any positive purpose, and in fact put people at risk.

 After our first positive COVID-19 case in September, the school was inspected by Alberta Health Services (AHS) and we have since been inspected one more time by Occupational Health and Safety.  Neither inspection raised any major concerns; in fact, we have many protocols in place that others schools are not doing, including closing our campus at lunch so that students are not leaving the safety of their cohort to gather in large groups off campus.  Having a closed campus creates more work for us at the school level, but we believe that it is an important part of keeping students and staff safe.   We are also checking temperatures of staff and students when they arrive at school.   As our Chief Medical Officer of Health, Dr. Hinshaw states frequently, “We are in this together."  This means that we cannot continue to keep our school safe without your help.  Thank you to those parents who complete the daily health checks with their students and to those who keep their children home when they are not feeling well.  We have come to see how important this help is, as we now know the significance of what it means to ask a group of students and staff members to self-isolate or quarantine.  We would much rather have one student away for a few days because they are ill than an entire cohort of students and staff.  If you are unsure of what to do if your child is ill, please call 811 or go to AHS - Guidance for Parents of Children Attending School and/or Childcare​ for more information.

Our teachers are utilizing Google Classroom in face-to-face learning at least once a week and when students are away either because they are ill or because they have been asked to isolate.  If you are unsure of how to support your child who is home, please sign on to Google Classroom with them. 

It is more important than ever before for us to have all of your contact information, including email addresses, as that is how AHS will be communicating with families in the case of a cohort needing to isolate.  We also require that all students have at least TWO emergency contacts in the case of an emergency.  If you only have one, or if your contact information has changed, please call the school and a new demographic form will be printed for signature and we will update data.  We also recommend you subscribe to SchoolMessenger notices from the school.  Visit for more information.  It is important for all families to regularly check these important emails. 

This Friday, October 23, is photo retake day and we are asking Hub students to come in to the school for their photos on this day.  All Hub students should have their photo taken and this will be their only opportunity.  Hub students should come to the front of the school and they must wear masks when they enter.  Grade 9 Hub students will be welcomed between 9:00 – 9:30 a.m.  Grade 7 and 8 Hub students will be welcomed between 10:20 – 10:50 a.m.  We understand that some families may be nervous about their students in the school, but we can assure you that we will follow all safety protocols and limit contact between other students and staff.  Please call the school if you have questions.

 For our students attending regularly who would like a retake, they can return their entire photo package order form to the photographer or bring a handwritten note to the photographer to request a retake.  We ask that students new to Clarence Sansom School or students that missed the original photo day to have their photograph taken. 

Starting on Oct. 1, 2020, fees were posted on your MyCBE/PowerSchool account. Fees are due when they appear in your account.  They can be paid online or at the school. The CBE is introducing a new student supplies fee for the 2020-21 school year. This fee will apply to all students in kindergarten through Grade 9 (excluding HUB online learning students) to support in offsetting the cost to purchase school supplies for the year.

Clarence Sansom | Re-entry Guidelines

Dear Clarence Sansom Families:​

I am looking forward to welcoming our school community to the 2020-21 school year. I want to assure you we are doing everything possible to ensure the health and safety of all our community members.

As you are aware on July 21, Education Minister Adriana LaGrange announced that all schools across the province will return to classes under Scenario 1 – in-school classes resume (near normal with health measures). In response, plans are well underway in our school to welcome our community of students as we adhere to current health guidelines.

CBE's Scenario 1 Information can be found on our website and outlines the measures we are taking to provide for the health and safety of our students. Please refer to this document for detailed information on health measures, physical set-up of schools, cleaning of schools, daily operation of schools and transportation. The actions described in the document follow the guidelines provided by Alberta Education's K-12 School Re-entry COVID-19 information: Guidance for schools re-entry Scenario 1.  We continue to refine information in our re-entry planning based on provincial and CBE guidance.

Please continue reading below for specific information about Clarence Sansom School's re-entry plan.

Clarence Sansom School

Clarence Sansom School | Re-entry Guidelines


Please read carefully the information below to gain an understanding of the measures we are taking to provide for the safety and health of our students. The CBE will continue to make adjustments as our context changes. While this plan is set for now, updates are expected via the CBE corporate website. Parents are advised to check regularly.


We are asking that families start the first day back to classes with our new procedures. It is necessary that students be assessed using the self-screening form daily before school. The following link will allow you to download the most current Alberta Health daily checklist. Please print a copy of the Self-screening Questionnaire. Students showing symptoms as described on the Self-screening Questionnaire must remain home.


Staggered Start to School Year

We are beginning our school year by limiting the number of students entering the school over the first two to three days. The purpose of the plan is:

§  To ease the transition of students into school,

§  To spend time with smaller groups familiarizing them with our health measures,

§  To facilitate physical distancing while teaching the protocols of our health measures.

Because of bussing, staggered entry days are full day.  Students are expected to wear masks.

§  Grade 7s and ACCESS and ALP students will come to school on Tuesday, September 1 (no other grades will attend that day).  Students should arrive for an 8:30 start outside the front doors of the school; the school day will end at 3:30.  Calls will be made prior to September 1 informing students of which cohort they are assigned to.  Staff and signage will be in place to make it clear where students need to line-up.  Teachers will be holding cohort signs near the school's main entrance and students will gather with their teacher to be escorted into the building.  Social distancing will be maintained.  Students will not be permitted to leave the school at lunch, so they must bring a lunch that can be eaten at their desk and does not require refrigeration or microwave access.  Grade 7, ACCESS and ALP students will NOT attend school on Wednesday or Thursday.  They will return to school on Friday, September 4, with all other students.

§  Grade 8s will come to school on Wednesday, September 2 (no other grades will attend that day).  Students should arrive for an 8:30 start outside the front doors of the school; the school day will end at 3:30.  Calls will be made prior to September 1 informing students of which cohort they are assigned to.  Staff and signage will be in place to make it clear where students need to line-up.  Teachers will be holding cohort signs near the school's main entrance and students will gather with their teacher to be escorted into the building.  Social distancing will be maintained.  Students will not be permitted to leave the school at lunch, so they must bring a lunch that can be eaten at their desk and does not require refrigeration or microwave access.  Grade 8 students will NOT attend school on Tuesday or Thursday.  They will return to school on Friday, September 4, with all other students.

§  Grade 9s will come to school on Thursday, September 3 (no other grades will attend that day).  Students should arrive for an 8:30 start outside the front doors of the school; the school day will end at 3:30.  Calls will be made prior to September 1 informing students of which cohort they are assigned to.  Staff and signage will be in place to make it clear where students need to line-up.  Teachers will be holding cohort signs near the school's main entrance and students will gather with their teacher to be escorted into the building.  Social distancing will be maintained.  Students will not be permitted to leave the school at lunch, so they must bring a lunch that can be eaten at their desk and does not require refrigeration or microwave access.​Grade 9 students will NOT attend school on Tuesday or Wednesday.  They will return to school on Friday, September 4, with all other students.

§  Parents can drop off and pick up their students on the sidewalks near the school.  Parents are asked to maintain physical distance on school property and remain outside the building.  If parents need to come into the building, they can call in advance to make an appointment. 


Health Measures

§  Hand Washing: Students will be instructed on the location of hand sanitizers and reminded to use them frequently.

§  Hand sanitizing stations are located in entrances, exits, classroom without sinks and near high touch equipment.

Illness at school

§  Students exhibiting signs of illness will be moved to the nurse's room.  This area will be thoroughly cleaned and disinfected after the student has left. 

§  It is critical parents / guardians or a pre-identified emergency contact pick up an ill child within an hour of being contacted by the school.


Masks are mandatory for all students from kindergarten to grade 12. This includes classrooms and public spaces such as hallways, learning commons, bathrooms, etc. Mask guidelines, including support for students and staff who are unable to wear a mask due to medical conditions or other needs, are currently being developed.

Volunteers and Guest Visitors

§  Although volunteers are valued members of our community in their support of our students, to minimize outside contact of established student cohorts, there will be no volunteers working in the school. Individuals are encouraged to communicate with the school through email or by phone.

§  In-person guests such as guest speakers and artists in residence will not be invited into schools to minimize outside contact of established cohorts.

§  These decisions will be revisited throughout the year.

School Supplies

§  Schools will be providing student supplies in an individual bag (e.g., pens, pencils, erasers, etc.)  Students are not to share their personal supplies, e.g., pencils.

Physical Set-up of Schools

Physical Distancing 

Schools will arrange and monitor physical distancing when and where possible as outlined in the Alberta Education's K-12 School Re-entry COVID-19 information: Guidance for schools re-entry Scenario 1.  

Classroom set-up

§  Desks are arranged in rows with students facing forward.

§  Number of students at tables will be limited.

§  Seating plans are mandatory and will be in place for every class. 


Where possible, schools will organize students and teachers into groups and teachers will move to classes rather than students changing class locations whenever possible. 

§  Cohorts are classes in individual grades; these students will remain together throughout the day.  Individual cohort groups will learn together and be provided breaks as a cohort, including lunch. 


We are providing each cohort with an area outside that supports physical distancing and promotes physical activity.  Breaks will be provided mid-morning and at lunch.  Depending on weather, breaks will be offered inside and outside the school.

§  Lunch: Cafeterias and canteens will follow the Alberta government's strict COVID-19 health guidelines. Numbers in eating areas will be limited to less than 100 students. A reminder that students are not to share food or drinks.

§  Our cafeteria will not be open.  Students will have to bring their own lunches and they will eat with their cohort in their classroom. 

§  Our campus will be closed at lunch.  This means that students will NOT be permitted to leave the school grounds at lunch.  Students will remain with their cohort in their assigned area during lunch.  A closed campus will limit the risk of Covid-19 exposure to staff and students.

§  Parents are not permitted to bring student lunches to school throughout the morning.  Students are expected to bring their lunch with them to school.

Water bottles

Students are encouraged to bring their own water bottles to fill and have available over lunch and at their desks during the day. As a high touch area, water fountains will be sanitized regularly. The use of water bottles will limit movement in the hallways.

Common Areas

Consideration has been given to managing student numbers where students often gather. School settings will limit student gatherings to less than 100 students.

Library Learning Commons  

The Library Learning Commons space will not be available to students or staff for finding resources.  The space may be used to expand classroom space to meet physical distancing requirements. 

Hallways and indoor common areas (foyer, etc.) 

Students are not permitted to gather in groups outside of their cohort.  Movement within the hallways will be limited.  All seating areas in the hallways will be removed or blocked.

Students will be expected to leave the school immediately after dismissal, unless under the direct supervision of a teacher.

Storage of Student Belongings / Change Rooms


In order to support physical distancing, no lockers will be used. Lockers will be locked to prevent their use. The use of lockers will be revisited throughout the year.

§  Students are asked to limit the amount of personal belongings they bring to school as space to store these items is limited to classrooms.  Each classroom will have protocols about storage of student items.  The school is not responsible for lost or stolen items—we ask that students not bring valuables to school.

Change Rooms or locker rooms

At this time we will not be using locker rooms or changing for physical education classes.  The use of locker rooms will be revisited throughout the year.  If or when locker rooms will be used, we will use the following protocols:

§  Capacity will be limited and physical distancing protocols followed when use is necessary. Floor markings will be used to indicate where students must stand when changing to ensure adequate spacing.

§  The entry and exit of students into a locker/change room will be monitored and staggered in order to provide physical distancing. 

§  Students are to hand wash/sanitize upon entering and exiting.

§  Students will need to remove their belongings from the locker/change room.

§  Locker rooms should be disinfected between classes/cohorts.

Further details can be found at: Guidance for Sport, Physical Activity and Recreation - Stage 2


Movement in School

We are minimizing occasions of large gatherings of students and managing movement overall of students in the hallways.​

Entrances and exits 

On the first day of school, students will enter by the front doors. After that day, all students will have assigned doors for entry and exit and movement will be directed in the building. 

o   Traffic flow in the building (hallways and stairwells) will be managed and students will not gather in public spaces when they arrive, at lunch, or after dismissal.  Students will report to their classroom immediately upon entering the school. 

·       Arrival and departure times at school are the busiest times for our school. To assist in the movement of students and to support physical distancing we are implementing the following:

·       Walking students: students are discouraged from arriving early and staying at school after dismissal.  The school will remain locked until 8:15 a.m. and students can enter the building after that time.

·       To assist with physical distancing, parents who wish to, can meet their children on the sidewalks around the school for pickup.  We ask that parents arrange with their children a meeting location away from the exits and consider parking away from the school grounds.  We expect to have more vehicle traffic than normal so we ask that parents consider that their travel time may be affected by the volume of vehicles.  As always, we ask that parents and students keep traffic safety in mind when walking or driving near the school.

§  At the end of the day, cohorts will be dismissed in a staggered fashion to avoid crowding in the halls.


The health and safety of your child will remain a priority for our school and we will keep you updated as new information becomes available. As mentioned, detailed information for the guidelines for safety and health for all schools is available on CBE's Scenario 1 Information website. We are confident that, as a community, we will soon adjust to our new protocols and practices. We look forward to welcoming our students back to school and resuming our time together as a positive and caring learning community.

Preliminary Re-entry Information | Staggered Entry Next Week

We hope that Clarence Sansom families have been keeping safe and well over the summer, and have had an opportunity to find some peace and relaxation. 

We understand that parents are anxious to know as many details as possible regarding the plans for re-opening the school next week.  A detailed description will be sent and posted on August 28.  In its essence, it follows the Phase One Guidance for School re-entry published by the Government of Alberta - with some 'Sansom specific' instructions.

This message is primarily to inform parents that we will be following a staggered entry format next week for students returning to school, in order to ensure students know how to safely access the school, and learn what their school days will be like for the coming weeks and months.  The goal is reduction of risk and enhancement of safety through commonly understood practices and behaviours.  If you have signed up for The Hub Online Learning these staggered entry dates do not apply to you.

The schedule is as follows:

Tuesday, Sept. 1 – Grade 7 students ONLY from 8:30 a.m. – 3:30 p.m.

Wednesday, Sept. 2 – Grade 8 students ONLY from 8:30 a.m. – 3:30 p.m.

Thursday, Sept. 3 – Grade 9 students ONLY from 8:30 a.m. – 3:30 p.m.

Friday, Sept. 4 – ALL students from 8:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. 

It's important that students only attend school on their designated days next week.  ALL staff and students are required to wear masks to enter the school.

Please stay tuned for the detailed plan coming August 28.  Thank you for your patience. 

"Every Albertan has a role to play in keeping their friends, family, and neighbours safe. Diligently following the health measures in place means you are being considerate and caring, not over cautious or afraid. Let's all see it as our personal responsibility to follow the health measures and keep people safe." 

- Dr. Deena Hinshaw, Chief Medical Officer of Health, Alberta Health Services

Sansom students, parents and guardians:


Report Cards will be available for viewing online on June 25, 2020.

It is that time of year to report student achievement through a report card.  We are asking you to view the report card through MyCBE/PowerSchool.  Once logged in, you will see an additional tab titled “Report Card”.  Select this tab to view the report card.  Should you wish to have a printed report card, please contact the school to arrange a time for you to safely collect it from the school during school hours.


Stay well.​
