Attendance

Attendance Line: 403-777-7540 ext. 1.

Anytime a student is absent, a parent is required to call the school at the number above detailing the date, student's name and reason for the absence. Our voice message system will take your call before, during and after office hours.

Lates

Students who arrive late must check into the office. Should lates continue, parents will be contacted by phone or email. Students who are frequently late will need to make up this important instructional time. 

Unexcused Absences

Students absent from school without permission of the school or parents are considered truant. Students are required to attend school until the age of 16. Absence from individual classes is regarded as “skipping.” Recurring absences may result in the establishment of an Attendance Improvement Plan.

Early Check Out

Students requesting special consideration to leave school during regular hours (medical, dental, etc.) must provide a note from the parent. Students must check out through the school office.

Request for Special Leave

Extended absences from school are viewed as detrimental to student achievement and are discouraged. Work missed is the responsibility of the student. Extended absence forms are available from the office and must be picked up several days prior to a long term absence.

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.​​​​​​​​
