Reporting Absences/Lates

To help us keep accurate attendance, we ask that absences and lates be reported to the school prior to 10:00 AM. You can do this by:

We use an automated absence call system so, if absences/lates are not reported by 10:00 AM, a phone call and/or email will automatically go out for all unreported students.

Students Leaving Early

Remember to send a note with your child, indicating the time they are to be dismissed.

  1. The student should show the note to the teacher who has them at the indicated time.
  2. They are then to bring that note to the office, so that they can officially be signed out.
  3. They’ll then wait at the front door for your arrival so that you do not need to come in tothe building, via the locked door.

If you forget to send a note, call the main office line; we will locate your student and send them to the door to meet you. This may take a bit of time.

Extended Absences

To report an extended absence, use the same protocols indicated for daily absences, with start and end dates. It is also important to contact your child’s teachers to convey at least some of this information, so that a plan can be discussed regarding missing work. If the attendance message is not conveyed to the office, you will receive an automated call every day your child is away.

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.​​​​​​​​

Starting Monday, April 19 Gr 7-12 students will transition to at-home learning for at least two weeks. K-6 will continue in-person classes. Schools have provided specific details to families. #yycbe #WeAreCBE

Every year many CBE schools participate in a Terry Fox Run. In 2020, our schools raised an incredible $163,886.64 for cancer research. Thank you to all of our students, staff and school communities who have kept Terry’s dream alive 40 years after his journey began! #WeAreCBE

RT @UsihChristopher: We thank you for your patience and understanding as we work to make this learning shift for next week. While it is yet another significant change, we hope that it will serve to reduce the current learning disruptions that are continuing to occur in our schools.
