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 by 9:00 am to excuse and explain the student’s absence or to advise us 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.

Lates for Classes

Attendance will be taken at the beginning of each period. It is required that all students attend class prepared and on time. If a student is late for class, an automated notification will be sent home. Repeated problems will result in teacher consequences and a conversation with family. 

Leave of Absence / Family Vacations

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 one week before leaving. Parents need to note that extended absences will affect student results and assessment.

​​Attendance in MyCBE

Our student information system, MyCBE provides parents, guardians and students with access to detailed attendance information. For help creating an account or signing in, please visit Technical Support for Students & Parents.

Attendance records are available in Grades and Attendance or Attendance History. Common attendance codes are:

  • (_) =Present
  • A = Absent
  • L = Late
  • IL = Illness
  • AP = Absent - Parent Called
  • LVE = Leave Early
  • MA = Appointment

A legend of all the attendance codes are available at the bottom of the attendance charts.. To discuss any discrepancies, please contact the school office.

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.​​​​​​​​
