Attendance

Attendance Line: 403-777-7995 ext. 1.

If your child(ren) will be late or absent, please email VCAttendance@cbe.ab.ca or call the office attendance line at 403-777-7995 ext 1 to leave a message, 24 hours a day.

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 CBE’s Attendance Officer, if appropriate.

Lates

Students who arrive late must report to the office for a late slip before going to class, otherwise a phone call home may be made to report the student absent. Late slips are given to the teacher. Teachers do not accept students who are late unless they have a late slip. Students who miss class because they are late or absent need to contact their teachers to review expectations for missed work or assignments.

Leaving Early

Students who have an appointment or have to leave school before regular dismissal time must sign out at the office. Permission to be excused from school can only be granted by the office upon request by a parent or guardian. Under no circumstances shall a student leave the school grounds during instructional hours without first obtaining permission from the office. 

  • Students in Grades 4 - 6 are not permitted to leave the school grounds at any time except with parent permissions. 
  • Students in Grades 7 - 9 may only leave the campus during the lunch hour.

Extended Absences 

We understand that lengthy 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 with reasonable warning. 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.

Our student information system, MyCBE / PowerSchool provides parents and students with access to detailed attendance information. For help creating an account or signing in, please visit Technical Support for Students & Parents.

Attendance records are available in Grades and Attendance or Attendance History. Common attendance codes are:

  • (_) =Present
  • A = Absent
  • L = Late
  • IL = Illness
  • AP = Absent - Parent Called
  • LVE = Leave Early
  • MA = Appointment

A legend of all the attendance codes are available at the bottom of the attendance charts in PowerSchool. To discuss any discrepancies, please contact the school office.

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.​​​​​​​​

Taking a moment of silence to remember and honour our veterans. The ones who made it home and the one who did not. #LestWeForget #IndigenousVeteransDay #RemembranceDay #WeAreCBE https://t.co/5s6tZ4AckQ

Last week, Grade 6 students 'met' with Mayor Nenshi to discuss democracy, municipal government, Calgary's future, and why representation matters. @nenshi spoke from the heart, and was candid and inspiring! #democracy #Calgary #civilsociety #RepresentationMatters #WeAreCBE https://t.co/noOJMGX0GU
