Attendance Line: 403-817-3448 ext: 1

It is important that you call the school if your child is absent or arriving late. Please report all absences to the Attendance Line at 403-817-3448.

Student Absences

  • We ask that parents call the phone number above to advise of all student absences. Parents are required by legislation to advise the school of the reason for absence.
  • The school uses an electronic messaging system called School Messenger to leave an automated phone / email / text message in the morning advising parents of an unaccounted / unexcused absence. We would appreciate a reply at your earliest convenience explaining the absence.
  • If sending someone else to pick up your child(ren), do let us know in writing.
  • Only approved adults will be permitted to pick up students and/or sign them out at the main office.
  • When children are ill, we ask that you keep them home.
  • Please review the COVID-19 Guidelines for illness and daily self-assessment document provided by AHS.
  • It is imperative that the school be made aware of custody arrangements and that legal documentation be provided to support parental situations and requests.

Leaving School During Instructional Hours

  • Students in Grades 1–4 must not leave school premises during school hours if they have paid for lunchroom supervision.
  • Students in Grades 1-4 who do not pay for lunchroom supervision must go home or be under adult supervision. Stop at the school office to sign them out.
  • Students in Grade 1-4 who are staying for drop in lunchroom must have a note from their parent and check in with lunchroom supervisors for attendance.

A legend of all the attendance codes are available at the bottom of the attendance charts.. To discuss any discrepancies, please contact the school office.

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.​​​​​​​​
