Attendance Line: 403-777-6780 ext.1
Attendance rate and punctuality are very important because students are more likely to succeed in academics and feel a sense of belonging and confidence when they attend school and arrive on time consistently. In addition to affecting the individual students’ progress, frequent late arrivals can also be disruptive to the rest of the class.
It is essential that parents/guardians contact the school and/or the particular teacher to advise if students will be late or absent.
If the school is not advised of a late arrival or absence, parents/guardians will be contacted as soon as possible after attendance is taken in the morning and the afternoon to confirm the safety and wellbeing of the student(s) in question.
Picking Your Child Up
Sometimes parents need to take children out of school or the lunchroom for a special occasion or appointment. It is very important that we are aware of students who are leaving the school throughout the day. Prior to leaving with students, parent/guardians are required to check in at the main office and sign students out in the logbook. Office personnel will contact the appropriate classroom and ask the student to report to the office. Parents/guardians are asked to help the school by advising of any custody agreements that may dictate those individuals with whom children are permitted to leave the school.
