Attendance

Attendance Line: 403-777-8060 ext. 1.

When students are going to miss classes due to illness, medical appointments or family emergencies, parents / guardians must call the office at the number above. Leave a message including your child’s first and last name, grade, classroom teacher and the reason for the absence/late. If we have not received a call regarding your child’s absence, we will attempt to contact you to verify the absence. We will phone the work and home number of the number one contact person which you have listed. Your attendance phone call is very important. Help us by keeping us informed of any changes to your contact information.

The Telephone - For - Safety Program is in operation. Call our 24-hour answering service at 403-777-8060 and dial extension “1” to leave a message indicating your child‟s name, name of your child‟s teacher and reason for absence or late. This line is checked frequently throughout the day. If your child is absent or late and we have not received a phone call or other notification from you, we will attempt to phone you at home or at work to ensure your child is safe.

Arriving Late / Leaving Early

If your child is going to be late please notify the school at 403-777-8060 (press "0‟). Late students are to enter through the front doors to report to the main office, collect a late slip and then proceed to their classroom.

If your child is going to leave early please notify both the school at 403-777-8060 (press "1‟) as well as your student‟s teacher through their CBE email account. The office and teacher will make every effort to ensure your child is sent to the office for the requested time. This procedure will limit classroom interruptions. A parent or other adult must go to the main office and record the early departure on the Student In/Out sheet. All students leaving during school hours will need to be signed out. If students are leaving over lunch hour and normally stay for lunch please send a note or sign the student out and meet them in the main office.

School Telephone Use

Please ensure that your child has arranged after school plans with you before coming to school, as telephones are designated for school business. Students may use the phone in cases of emergency or at the request of a staff member.

For safety reasons we do not confirm the enrollment of a child at our school over the telephone. This becomes very difficult when parents phone to ask us to pass along messages, as we cannot always identify the caller. If your child needs to go to a location other than home at dismissal time please make these arrangements ahead of time and with the classroom teacher if possible. A note in the agenda is very helpful and greatly appreciated.

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.​​​​​​​​
