Attendance

Attendance Line: 403-777-6660 ext. 1

It is important that you call the school if your child is absent or arriving late. Please report all absences to the Attendance Line above. 

Regular attendance and punctuality are required of all students by CBE Policy. Parents are requested to inform the school by calling the attendance line phone number prior to the start of the school day or by note if a student is to be late or absent. If sending a note, a brief explanation is requested. The office staff will attempt to contact parents at home or work if a student is absent and we have not been informed.

Teachers will follow up on noticeable absenteeism, while chronic absenteeism or lates will be followed up by the teacher or school administration. Referrals will be made to the attendance officer, if appropriate.

Lates

Students who arrive late must report to the office to check in before going to class, otherwise a phone call home may be made to report the student absent. 

Appointments during the Day

Parents are asked to indicate if the child will be leaving during the school day by letting the office know by noon or by a note. For safety and security:

  • Students leaving the school must be signed out in the office.
  • Students leaving with an adult other than their own parent must have a signed release note or contact the office by phone.

Extended Absences

Extended Absences may occur due to family holidays or other events. In the case of an extended absence, parents need to notify the teacher and office. Teachers are not responsible for assigning homework and catching up is the student’s responsibility. Extended absences, if not for medical reasons, are considered as unexcused absences in a student’s record.

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.​​​​​​​​

CBE schools are now closed until August. Thank you to all school staff for your extraordinary service.
