Attendance

Attendance Line: 403-777-8560 ext. 1

Remember to report absences due to illness, appointments, lateness, etc. before school starts by calling us at the number above. We ask that you leave a message, providing the student's name, teacher and reason for absence.

Phone in for Safety 

Regular school attendance is essential. We understand there are times when children must miss school for appointments or due to illness. We would ask that parents phone our attendance line above if their child is going to be absent or late. The line is checked twice each day. As a courtesy, the school secretary will try to phone parents at home or at work if a child is absent and if we have not been informed of the absence. 

Students needing to leave school early are to be signed out of the office by a parent. All children are expected to go directly home following dismissal. Students who are consistently late will have their parents phoned by the classroom teacher. If there is no change in attendance, a reminder letter will be sent home. Persistent absences will require an attendance plan be put into place.

Extended Absences

Families are requested to notify both the office and their children’s classroom teachers of extended absences prior to their departure. Please provide a letter indicating when your child will be away from school. If families choose to take children out of school for extended periods of time we encourage daily reading, writing and use of online resources for other academic subjects. Teachers are not expected nor required to assemble homework packages for students who have extended absences. When the children return to school, it is the responsibility of parents to ensure their children complete any missed work and assignments.

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.​​​​​​​​

Friday, Sept 24 is a system-wide non-instructional day so there are no classes for CBE students. Have a safe long weekend and please continue to follow all public health measures #WeAreCBE https://t.co/2BCAzks4jb

RT @Indigenous_cbe: Today is fall equinox - a time when daylight & nighttime share the sky equally. Today is also Treaty 7 Day - the 144th anniversary of the signing of Treaty 7. The 🌞 & 🌙s equality today teaches us how to honour the treaty...by walking together in equal partnership. #welcomeoko https://t.co/7nUdmGVAVL
