Attendance

Attendance Line: 403-777-6050 ext. 1.

Absent / Late Guidelines

If your child is going to be absent or late for any reason, please call the office at the number above to leave a message. If your child is absent and we have not heard from you, we will be contacting you. If you are picking up your child during school hours, please come to the office to sign them out. If students are late, they require a late slip from the office to enter class.  

Please do not email attendance as we may not check that email account before attendance is completed. If your child will not be taking the bus, we must receive notification (preferably by a note to the teacher in their agenda) or a call to the school office. Bused students must be signed out by the parent if they are picking up their child. 

Early Pick-ups

If a child has an appointment, please arrange with them ahead of time (by writing in the child’s agenda or emailing their teacher) to meet you at the office. If they are not there, ask one of our office staff to call your child down to meet you. Be sure to sign them out so we know that they have left the building. Please ensure that you allow yourself enough time for the child to get ready to leave with you. The office staff will gladly call your child to the office once you arrive at the school.

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 @JES_CBE: The Grade 4’s were inspired by graffiti artist, Jean-Michel Basquiat. We noticed he would have a bold central picture that was in black, and then he used a lot of bright colours to add interest to his work. @artistbasquiat #wearecbe #CBEart https://t.co/q4OyyrETcw
