Attendance

Attendance Line: 403-259-5585

Parents/guardians are expected to contact the school if child is unable to attend a class or the school day.

At Lord Beaverbrook High School we believe that regular and punctual attendance is essential to student success in High School. The following will guide actions taken to address student un-excused, non-attendance at school.

If a student brings a parent note to explain the absence, it must be shown to classroom teachers and then submitted to the Main Office for recording in the attendance data-base. Students are responsible for obtaining and completing all missed work related to any absence.

Extended Absence

An extended absence form must be completed and submitted by the student to the Assistant Principal for absences of three or more consecutive days. These forms are available from the Main Office or website and must be submitted before the absence occurs.

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.​​​​​​​​
