Attendance and Lates

This year we have moved to an automated phone system for attendance. This automated phone system will be calling parents/legal guardians in the morning and after lunch to notify when students are marked absent. If you receive this call, and want to verify your child’s attendance, please do not hesitate to call the school. 

 If the student arrives late, they must be signed in at the front entrance in order for attendance to be updated. Please continue to email or call the attendance line (403-777-6254, extension 1) if your child will be away for the day, arriving late or leaving early.  The email address/attendance line is available 24 hours a day. 

Family Vacations – Extended Absences

The Alberta School Act requires regular attendance and it is recommended that vacations and extended absences take place during scheduled breaks.

If you are planning to remove your child from school, please contact the school office and the classroom teacher. If the absence is more than one week, we request that parents complete and sign an “Extended Absence” form. Please note that the school cannot grant approval to be absent, but simply records the parental intent to have the student discontinue attendance.

While we appreciate that travel provides a valuable learning opportunities, we know that extended absences can have an impact on achievement. Most of the learning activities that take place in the classroom cannot be replicated when a child is absent and teachers cannot provide extra programming or homework during extended breaks.

A legend of all the attendance codes are available at the bottom of the attendance charts.. 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.​​​​​​​​
