Attendance Line: 403-777-7195 ext. 1.

Parents are requested to call the school at the number above to leave a message, if their child will be late or absent. Messages must include:

  • The child’s first and last name 
  • The child's grade 
  • Their teacher's name 
  • The reason for absence

If a child is expected at school but does not arrive, students:

  • Kindergarten: Parents will be contacted to verify the absence
  • Grades 1 - 9: Will have an automated recording send to their home notify they were not at school today

The responsibility for regular and punctual attendance, which is necessary for satisfactory school progress, is with the student and parents. Excessive absences or lates may result in administrative intervention. Each reporting period parents are given a print-out of their child's lates and absences.
