Absences/Attendance

Student Absence Procedures

If your child is going to be absent or arriving late, please call the absence line at (403)932-3151. An answering machine will take your call, please state:

  • Your child’s name
  • Your child’s teacher’s name
  • The reason for the absence.

Students who arrive after 8:48 must be signed in by a parent. The student needs to pick up a late slip at the office to give to their teacher.

Only those students who live in town and who go home for lunch are permitted to leave the school grounds at lunch time.

We request that you provide a note to the teacher if you are picking your child up
during the day for a medical/dental appointment. Upon returning, the parent must
ensure their child(ren) has checked in at the office.

Students are not allowed to leave the school premises unless they are picked up by the parent(s) and signed out at the office or under the direct supervision of a teacher ie field trip or weekly walk. If a child is to be picked up by someone other than the child's parents, it is imperative the school and teacher be informed. It is especially important to inform the school if there is someone who is not permitted to pick up a child.
