Please visit our COVID-19 page for the most up-to-date information. Our plan is subject to change throughout the school year as more information becomes available.​

One of the most important ways parents/guardians and community members can make a meaningful difference for students is by participating on the school council. Under the School Act, a school council is a collective association designed to advise the principal and the CBE Board of Trustees on matters related to the school. School councils have legislated advisory and decision-making authority. They are different from Parent Societies & Associations, whose main function is to raise funds for the school.​​ You can find more details in the CBE School Council Handbook​.​​​​

School Council

Our Mission

To contribute to the development of children who are Responsible, Well Educated, Compassionate, have a Sense of Community, a Love of Learning, and are Supportive, Kind and Inclusive.


Meeting Dates/Schedule

Due to the evolving COVID-19 situation, our meetings will be held virtually until further notice.  The link will be distributed via email a few days before the meeting.

Meetings are held one Wednesday per month at  6:30 PM. All parents/guardians are members of the school council and are encouraged to attend the meetings and become involved in their child’s school community. We welcome your participation!

RT @UsihChristopher: As we conclude Week 1 of online learning for Grades 7-12 students while continuing with in-person learning for K-6 students, I am grateful for the professionalism and dedication of our staff. Every time, staff have stepped up to support students and families. Thank you very much.

Friday, Dec. 4 is a system-wide non-instructional day. There are no classes for CBE students – this includes in-person, at-home and Hub online learning. Enjoy the beautiful weather and please continue to follow all public health measures #WeAreCBE https://t.co/72tgopR1dr
