Important Dates

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.​

The Calgary Board of Education continues to plan for the health measures that may be in place for the next school year. More details will be shared with families before the first day of classes.

Important Reminder Regarding Attendance

If your student is going to be absent at the beginning of the new school year, kindly advise our office by leaving a telephone voice message on our attendance line (open 24 hours/7) at 403-777-7190, dial 1; or by email indicating the start date of your child.  This will alleviate unnecessary phone calls home, as well as secure your child’s registration at Tom Baines School.
