We ask parents to email to let the school know that a student is going to be absent. Subject heading should be – ABSENCE. Provide the student's first and last name, teacher name, grade and room number. If you forget to call the school to report your child's absence our office staff will attempt to reach you.

  • If you wish to report a student absence or late by phone, you may call the number above.
  • If you wish to speak to someone in the main office, press 0 at any time.

Picking Up Students During School Hours

Parents who pick up a child during school hours are required to check in at the office first. Parents must notify their child's teacher in the Student Agenda so that they may be at the office for the required time. Parents are asked to sign their child(ren) out in the binder on the front desk before leaving the school during the day (including lunchtime for students who usually eat in the lunchroom). If the child returns to school during the day, they must sign in upon return. 

Changes in Bus Attendance

Parents are asked to notify the office with a note or by signing your child out at the office when your child will not be riding the bus. Occasionally, especially in the winter months, there may be delays with bus arrival times. If a bus is late, you may call Southland Transportation at 403-287-1335. You may also check

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.​​​​​​​​

It only takes a minute to donate to the EducationMatters’ Loonies for Literacy system-wide fundraising event to purchase resources for schools. You can donate to your favourite schools by simply texting 30333 and the school code. Learn More:… #WeAreCBE
