Attendance

Attendance Line: 403-777-8180 ext. 1.

Absences

We prefer if our parents notify the office of their child's absence. Often the information does not get to the office in a timely manner if left on the teacher's voicemail or in your child's agenda.  
In your message please the leave the following details:
  • Student first and last name
  • Teacher
  • Classroom
  • Duration of absence 
  • The reason why

Thank you to all families for their work to ensure that children arrive at school each day on time! This sets children up for a calm, successful day as they are not missing valuable learning time or feeling embarrassed that they are walking into the classroom in the middle of a lesson. Monitoring and supporting attendance is a significant priority for our School Learning Team, as we recognize the tremendous positive impact that regular on-time attendance has for student learning.

Extended Absence

We ask that you send a note in advance to the office indicating the first and last day of your child's extended absence. 

Temporary / Change of Guardian

If the child's guardian has changed, or the primary guardian will be absent for a period, we need to know. We ask that you contact the office with names and numbers in writing. Please note that we cannot release a child to anyone without your authority.

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 @elboyacbe: What an opportunity…students listened to FIFA soccer referee, Drew Fischer who officiated at the 2022 Men’s World Cup in Qatar. Talk about working towards and achieving one’s highest personal potential. Very inspiring! #wearecbe@yyCBEduhttps://t.co/y2M94sUnCs
