Attendance Line: 403-777-7460 ext. 1.

The School Act states that school attendance is compulsory for all students under the age of 16. We are required to keep accurate records of student attendance and to investigate student absenteeism. Parents/guardians are asked to call the school at the number above by 9:00 AM to excuse and explain the student’s absence or to advise of lateness. 

Students who arrive late must stop at the office to sign in and receive a late slip. Our automated phone system will be calling home to notify parents when students are absent or late (unexcused). When students need to leave the school early for appointments, they will require a note or phone call from a parent or guardian and they need to sign out at the office.

Leave of Absence / Family Vacation 

The school does not encourage students to take extended vacations/leaves during the academic year. If a student will be missing three or more days for reasons other than illness, the parents/guardians are requested to obtain an Extended Absence form from the office. It is suggested that these forms are completed at least 1 week before leaving. 

Participation in Physical Education

The Government of Alberta has mandated daily Physical Education. If a student is unable to participate in Phys. Ed for a medical reason, a doctor’s note will be required.

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.​​​​​​​​
