Attendance Line: 403-777-6500 ext. 1.
If your child is unable to attend school due to illness, you are asked to email: firstname.lastname@example.org or call the number above before 8:20 am. Reporting a student’s absence or lateness helps us maintain the safety and security of your child. If a child is absent and we have not been notified in advance, office staff will attempt to contact parents at home or work. This is a time-consuming task and your cooperation in phoning will help the system to run smoothly.
Students who arrive at school late are to report to the office for a late slip before going to class. An “excused” late is defined as a medical appointment or other event of that status. All other late arrivals are considered “unexcused”. Parents of students who are frequently late will be contacted by an administrator in order to develop strategies together that will help the student arrive at school on time.
Doctor and Dental Appointments
It is requested that appointments be made, if possible, outside of school hours. Children miss instruction that is impossible to make up if they are taken out during school hours. If this cannot be avoided, we ask that a note explaining the reason and time be sent to the teacher. Parents should meet their child at the school office to sign them out.
Avoid Early Pick-Ups
We ask that you avoid picking up your children before the designated lunch or afternoon dismissal times. The final minutes of the morning and afternoon are important organizational times for the students and teachers.
