Attendance Line: 403-777-7236 ext. 1.
If your child is going to be absent or late, please notify the school at the number above. Please leave a message indicating your child’s name and his/her room number or teacher’s name. It is very important to also give the reason for the absence and the length of the absence if known.
All students arriving late need to report to the office for a late slip, before proceeding to class. They will then be marked late rather than absent.
For security reasons, parents should advise the teacher in the child’s agenda that they will be picking up their child(ren) early. Parents are reminded to report to the office to meet their child(ren). Parents are required to sign the student out confirming they have picked up the child. Advance written confirmation and a contact phone number is also required from a parent if someone other than the parent/guardian is picking up the child, and they need to carry proper identification. No student will be dismissed to an alternate individual without prior consent.
We know that parents/caregivers make every attempt to pick up their children on time. However, if a parent anticipates they will be late due to unforeseen circumstances please contact the school as soon as possible before the dismissal bell. Every effort will be made to have your child wait in the office until you arrive.
Chronic or Extended Absences
Regular attendance at school is essential for student progress. Children that are away or are late for school miss critical learning and information. Early dismissal days on Friday morning should be considered a regular day of learning. Frequent absenteeism may result in letters being sent home, an attendance plan being created and may be reported to the CBE attendance counselor.
The CBE does not endorse students taking holidays during the regular school calendar. Parents that do take children on holidays do so at their own discretion and schools are not responsible for missed lessons or instruction.
