Attendance

Attendance Line: 403-777-6720 ext. 1.

We believe there is a strong positive correlation between attendance and effective education. Therefore, students registered in schools or programs shall attend regularly and punctually. It is the responsibility of parents to ensure compliance with this requirement and the responsibility of schools to ensure that parents are informed promptly when the attendance of students is not satisfactory.

Call in for Safety

Parents are asked to call the attendance line above (before 8:45 AM) if their child will be absent or late.  If you know ahead of time that your child will be absent, please call us. While you are encouraged to advise your child’s teacher, the office still requires a telephone call or written note ahead of time. When leaving a message please:

  • Spell your child’s name
  • Indicate your child’s teacher
  • State your name and relationship to the child
  • State the reason for the absence

Our school has an automated call-out system to notify parents quickly if their children are not at school. If you receive an automated message from the school, please press 1. To replay this message, please press *. After receiving this message regarding your child’s absence, please contact the school to let us know the reason for absence. Students who arrive at school late must check in at the office to receive a late slip before going to class.

When lates or absences are excessive, parents or guardians will be contacted to meet with school administration to offer an explanation. An attendance plan may be required to assist with improvements to these important issues.

Irregular Dismissals

When parents are picking up students for appointments during regular school hours, a guardian must come directly to the office upon entry to the school. Students will be dismissed from their classroom and will meet with their parents in the office. For the safety of our students, a legal guardian must sign-out children using the binder in the front office. In the event that someone other than the parent/s is picking up a student, the school must be notified in advance and that person will be asked to provide identification at the time of pickup.
