Attendance

Attendance Line: 403-777-8530

Our Telephone-For-Safety Program is in operation. It is very important to call our 24-hour answering service to leave a message if your child will be absent from school. When reporting, please spell your child’s last name and give  the reason for their absence. If your child is not at the school, and we have not received a telephone message, we will phone the contact numbers you have provided for us.

If you are picking your child up from school, outside of regular dismissal times, please sign your child/children out at the office.

If your child normally stays for lunchroom and you are picking them up please sign them out in the office.

Tardiness

Students are expected to arrive at school in time for the entry bell. Important instructional time is missed when students arrive late and timeliness is a life skill. We ask parents to help us teach this skill. The Alberta School Act requires that we work together to support children in this learning.

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.​​​​​​​​
