Attendance

Attendance Line: 403-777-7590 ext. 1.

Student Absences

  • We ask that parents call the phone number above to advise of all student absences. Parents are required by legislation to advise the school of the reason for absence.
  • The school uses an electronic messaging system called School Messenger to leave an automated phone / email / text message in the morning advising parents of an unaccounted / unexcused absence. We would appreciate a reply at your earliest convenience explaining the absence.
  • If sending someone else to pick up your child(ren), do let us know in writing.
  • When children are ill, we ask that you keep them home.
  • Please review the COVID-19 Guidelines for illness and daily self-assessment document provided by AHS.
  • It is imperative that the school be made aware of custody arrangements and that legal documentation be provided to support parental situations and requests.

Leaving School During Instructional Hours

  • Students in Grades 4 – 6 must not leave school premises during school hours if they have paid for lunchroom supervision.
  • Students in Grades 4 – 6 who do not pay for lunchroom supervision must go home or be under adult supervision. Stop at the school office to sign them out.
  • Students in Grades 7 – 9 may generally leave the building and property at lunch; however they must be on-time for afternoon classes.
  • Students need a parental note or phone call to be released for appointments. Remember to make these arrangements through the front office and then check the student out through the office.
  • No students are permitted to leave school property during Friday Nutrition Break.

Attendance Expectations at the CBE

We believe there is a strong correlation between attendance and effective education. The CBE Administrative Regulation 6020 - Attendance of Students​ regulation applies to all of our students, and outlines the responsibilities for students, parents and school staff.​​​​​​​​

Students across the CBE got up early to catch Team Canada’s last hurrah at the 2022 World Cup. It was more than just a soccer match. At Rideau Park School, students brought in items for the food bank. #WeAreCBE https://t.co/fqsAd71X4a
