Attendance

Attendance Line: 403-777-7800 ext 1

Students are expected to arrive at school on time ready to learn.

Regular school attendance and punctuality is a law set out by the Province of Alberta through the  Education Act, June 2016, sections 7 (Compulsory Education), 8 (Enforcing School Attendance), and 9 (Attendance at School). This document is available at http://www.qp.alberta.ca/documents/Acts/e00p3.pdf. The document outlines acceptable reasons for absence and consequences for frequent, late, or non-attendance.

The CBE Administrative Regulation 6020 - Attendance of Students – outlines our belief that there is a strong positive correlation between attendance and effective education. Therefore, students registered in school 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.

Parents are requested to call the office if their child will be absent or late. When calling the office for attendance, please state your child’s name, teacher, your name, and relationship to the child. Students who arrive late must check in at the office before going to class. When lates or absences are excessive, parents or guardians will receive a letter requesting to meet with school administration. We would like to work with parents to support their child in improving their attendance. Our first task in meeting with you is to understand your child’s needs and then develop a plan to support greater school success.

The Strength of Community

One of our primary goals is to model good citizenship and problem-solving for our students. We ask that students come to the school with a focus on moving learning forward and solving problems in a respectful manner. The school personnel will do the same.

RT @SOSAlberta: Make no mistake - Kenney is very deliberate with his messaging. @jkenney believes high quality education should be an *option for parents*. We believe high quality public education is the RIGHT OF ALL CHILDREN. Who will defend that right with us? Join Us. #ABEd #ABleg #ABPoli https://t.co/FAomwL1gHn

RT @joececiyyc: RT if you've had a shocking increase in your utility bills lately. And remember: if the UCP hadn't removed the price cap on the Regulated Rate Option for electricity (implemented by the NDP govt), prices per KWh would be less than half of what consumers are seeing today. #ableg
