We follow the CBE traditional calendar. The calendar sets common start and end days, non-instructional days and holidays. For our school’s additional non-instructional days, late entries, early dismissal days and events, see our school calendar page.​

Staggered Entry 

This year we are starting our school year by limiting the number of students entering the school over the first two days. The purpose of the plan is:

  • To ease the transition of students into our school,
  • To spend time with smaller groups familiarizing them with our health and safety measures,
  • To facilitate physical distancing while teaching the protocols of our health and safety measures.

Kindergarten

Kindergarten classes for the 2020 - 2021 school year are mornings only.   

Kindergarten students will have staggered entry the first 2 days of school.  All students will attend full day school beginning Thursday September 3, 2020.  

Kindergarten hours for the 2020-2021 school year are as follows: 

  •   Monday – Thursday                           8:30 am – 11:20 am

Drop off/Pick Up

Parents can take their child(ren) to their teacher, located outside of our school, in the designated spots highlighted on the map below. Teachers will contact families individually by phone this week to clarify the meeting location. Please note that there will not be Kiss and Drop service this year.

Parents, students and staff are expected to physically distance when outside.

We want to ensure that we provide a safe and caring environment for all students, staff and our exceptional learning community.  By being proactive and staggering our entry we will have the time we need to ensure that everyone is able to follow appropriate safety protocols.

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.
  • Students will be provided two reusable masks on the first day. They may also bring their own masks if they prefer.
  • Please send a small lunch size paper bag, labeled with your child’s name, where they can store their mask during mask breaks.
  • The school has many hand sanitizing stations for students to use.  If you wish to bring small personal bottles of hand sanitizer they can keep at their own spot, they are welcome to do so.
  • Please remember to label all personal belongings.

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

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.
