Attendance

Attendance Line: 403-817-3528 ext. 1

If your child will be absent or late from class, please email marshallsprings@cbe.ab.ca or call the number above to leave a message. Please include the student(s) name, grade, homeroom, duration of absence and the reason for the absence. If a reason is not given, it will be marked as an unexcused absence.

We want you at school!  Your teachers have great things planned for you each day. Our middle school program is designed specifically for the active needs of 10-to 15-year-olds. Your learning at the Middle School takes place in hands-on demonstrations, laboratories, interactive lessons, performances, and student-driven discussions.  If you are not here to participate, you miss significant learning opportunities that may impact your overall achievement. 

Excused Absences

If you are absent as a result of a school sponsored event or function (field trips), you will be granted an excused absence.  In these cases (as in any pre-arranged absence), you are expected to contact the teachers of the classes you will miss prior to the absence in order to collect and complete your homework in advance.  These missed days will not count against your overall attendance requirement. 

Absences 

We hope you are at school every day.  Your daily participation matters. However, if you are absent, your parents will want to email our attendance line to inform the school that you will not be attending.  You will want to take responsibility for your absence by checking D2L to gather information on missed assignments and activities. Make-up work is your responsibility and needs to be completed and turned in according to each teacher’s established deadlines. 

Early Departures/ Late Arrivals/ Pre-Arranged Absences 

As with any absence, your parents need to inform the school when you miss any part of a school day.  Your parents may use the attendance email or send you to school with a note. Anytime you arrive late, please check in directly with the office before heading to your locker or class.  Marshall Springs is a closed campus; anytime you need to depart early you must sign out at the office.

Lates

You are expected to be on time for each class each day.  We do not want you to miss important learning opportunities and instructions.  However, if you arrive late at school, check in with the main office directly. If you do not have a note from your parents, your late will be marked as unexcused.  It is rare for students to have unexcused lates, to avoid them students should head to their classes as soon as the warning bell rings. If you are repeatedly late, you will need to meet with the principal to develop a plan to ensure you are in class on time. 

Student Pick-Up

When picking up your child(ren) early, they must be signed out at the office by a parent/guardian on file.
