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.

Late Arrivals

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.

Early Pick-Ups 

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.

Late Pick-Ups

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.

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.​​​​​​​​

RT @ZooSchoolyyc: How do we teach the value and importance of our connection to all living things? Maybe by getting to know our local neighbours? This is a concept our Chris Akkermann students are just beginning to understand. Have you spotted this local winter bird?

RT @kinggeorgecbe: Le défi du flocon de neige a commencé! Comment est-ce que tous les élèves dans chaque classe vont créer un flocon de neige qui est aussi grand que Mme Shafina ou Mme Renée, en utilisant seulement le papier, les ciseaux et la laine? @CBELanguages #WeAreCBE

RT @KeelerSchool: Grade 6 students created pictograph rocks using symbols and colours to communicate their connections to the land. #WeAreCBE #Keeler
