Attendance Line: 403-777-8680 ext. 1
If your child will be absent or late from school, please phone the school 403-777-8680, press option # 1 and leave a message on the attendance line, even if you have provided a note to your child’s teacher. The Absence Line is available 24 hours per day, including weekends. Please do not email absence information as our school email account is not checked before attendance is done for the day.
When leaving an absence message, we request that you
- speak slowly and clearly
- provide your child’s first and last names, spelling each name if required
- provide their grade and teacher
- provide the reason for your child’s absence as well as the anticipated length
We wish to extend our thanks and appreciation to those parents who do call in for their children’s absences or lates. If we have not heard from you and your child is absent, we will take the time to contact you to assure the safety of your child. With such a large school population, we need everyone’s cooperation in reporting their children’s absence from, or late arrival to, school before the start of each school day.
Learn about our student sign-out procedures on our Security page.
If your child will be absent for an extended amount of time or you plan an extended absence for your child, please provide the school with the details of the absence and arrange to meet with administration to discuss the learning impact of this extended absence.
