Attendance

Attendance Line: 403-777-7290, Press 1

Lates for School

Plan to arrive at school with sufficient time to prepare for the AM or PM and proceed to class. If you arrive after the late bell, check in at the office for an agenda stamp to admit you to class. If you are late due to a medical appointment, etc., please provide a note or certificate, or ask your parent to contact the absence line. Unexcused lates will lead to a late detention held during the lunch hour. Students are to bring a lunch and work to do and report to the designated late room at the beginning of lunch.

Lates for Class

Two minutes are provided for movement from class to class. In order for classes to start on time, and to avoid congestion in the hallways, you are to report directly to your next class. Please do not return to lockers, or go to the washroom at this time. If you do have to make a “stop”, check in with your next class teacher, and obtain permission to leave. Lates between classes are resolved with the teacher concerned.

Absences

Regular attendance is essential for success in school, and we would encourage you, where possible, to make appointments outside of school hours.

When a student is absent we would ask for a phone call from a Parent/Guardian each day the student is absent. 403-777-7290, Press 1 and record your students first name, last name, homeroom and the reason for the absence. We access this line regularly throughout the day.

Extended Absences

In the case of prolonged illness, we would appreciate phone or email contact as soon as possible. It is the student's responsibility to be sure that he/she checks with teachers prior to departure re: assignments or tests, and again upon return. Please take advantage of HomeLogic and D2L.

Missed Classwork

Please check with classmates or teachers upon your return, or contact a “buddy” when you are absent to pick up handouts and assignments. If possible, pick a “buddy” who lives close to you, and who is in your Homeroom. You can record the name and contact information of your “buddy”. Also check HomeLogic and D2L.

Early Checkout

If, for any reason, a student must check out early, a note should be brought in advance, and given to the homeroom teacher. The student must check out through the Office. At no time should a student leave the building without following these procedures.

Regular Dismissal

At the end of the day, following return to Homeroom for checkout, you may choose to use the library, be part of an activity, work or visit with a teacher, or be a spectator in the gym. If you are not involved in these or other supervised functions, you are expected to leave the school within 15 minutes of dismissal.
