Drop off/Pick Up First Day of School

Parents can take their child(ren) to their teacher, located outside of our school, in the designated spots shared by their teacher. Teachers will contact families the last week of August, to clarify the meeting location.

What to Bring the First Day

Until winter weather arrives, students will wear one pair of shoes at school.  These shoes must be appropriate for gym class and outdoor activities (i.e. – running shoes vs. flip-flops).

  • A backpack that is large enough to hold a large picture book
  • A water bottle that will go home to be cleaned and refilled each day.
  • A healthy snack.  Students who will be staying for lunch will need a lunch kit for their lunch.
  • Please remember to label all personal belongings. 

School Calendar

We are a school that follows the traditional calendar. View our school's Calendar for upcoming events and dates.  

Noon Supervision

Lunch Registration

In order to eat lunch at school in our lunchroom program, all students must be registered. For more specific information as to cost and registration procedures, please see our Noon Supervision page.

Registration and payment can be done through MyCBE/PowerSchool account. 

Nellie McClung operates a four-day lunchroom program for all students from Grades 1 - 6.  

Please remember to call our lunchroom line to report a child’s absence/drop-in at 
403-777-8630 extension 2.

Nellie McClung operates a “Peanut-Aware” lunchroom. We discourage peanut products in the lunchroom but cannot guarantee a “peanut free” environment. Please let us know if your child has food allergies and requires support. For more information on how to deal with allergies, please see our Illness and Medical page.

Snacks and lunches should be easy for children to manage. Hot water and microwaves are not accessible for students.

During lunch recess, supervision is provided for students attending the lunch program. Students who go home for lunch should return no more than 5 minutes prior to the 12:45 pm entry bell and line up with their class to re-enter school.

Parents will be called by classroom teachers at the end of August to confirm classroom placements.  You may also login into your MyCBE/PowerSchool to see you your child’s teacher will be next year.

Parents who have not already done so, must create an account in MyCBE / PowerSchool to:

  • Pay fees or apply for a waiver

  • Register for transportation and lunch supervision

To create a new account, go to www.cbe.ab.ca/mycbe and click on Create Parent Account. You will need to have your child(ren)’s CBE Student ID Number and use your email on file at the school.​

​​Fees and Waivers

School fees will be charged to families starting in October. Online fee payment is the simplest and most convenient way to pay school fees. Parents can use their online account to pay fees or apply for a waiver at: www.cbe.ab.ca/mycbe.

You can find more information on the CBE school fees and waivers​ page.​​​​​​​

​​​Yellow School Bus Tra​nsportation

Yellow school bus routes for the 2021-22 school year are created o​ver the summer and based on the addresses submitted before the pre-registration deadline in June. Transportation continues to accept registrations after the deadline; however, students are added to the closest existing stop with available space. Processing times could be up to six weeks at the beginning of the school year due to volume.

More information about 2021-22 transportation service levels and proposed fees are posted on the CBE website.

Your bus stop location and time will be available in your MyCBE / PowerSchool account by mid-August.

Conditional riders can also register using MyCBE / PowerSchool. Applications will be considered after eligible riders registrations have been processed.

Learn more about transportation on the CBE website.

​Further Inform​ation

We look forward to a great year ahead. If you have any questions that we haven’t addressed here, please contact the school.
