ATTENDANCE

Regular and punctual attendance is essential for student success. To assist us in monitoring 
student attendance, we request that parents contact the school and leave a message on our 
answering machine if a child is to be away from school. This phone will be in operation 24 hours 
a day.


THE NUMBER FOR THE ABSENTEE CHECK LINE IS 780-487-2061.


Please use the following pattern for reporting an absence:


My name is _______________. I am reporting that ________________ will be absent from 
school ________________ (when - today, this afternoon etc.) Grade _________ 
Name of Teacher _______________

If it is possible inform the child's teacher prior to an absence. If your child must leave school prior to afternoon dismissal please send a written note informing the teacher.

If chronic attendance problems do develop, parents will be contacted to ensure that a solution is reached. It is the responsibility of the school to inform the Provincial Attendance Board of any students with chronic attendance or punctuality problems.

Attendance: 

Regular and punctual attendance is essential for student success, both academically and socially. 

Parents are asked to call the school at 780-487-2061 and leave a message if a child is to be away from school.  Please include: 

  • The child’s name and grade
  • The name of the child’s teachers
  • When the absence will be (full day, just morning, just afternoon) 
  • Reason for the absence. 

You may also let your child’s teacher know prior to an absence.  

If we are not informed of a student’s absence, an automated message will be sent out asking you to contact the school to confirm the absence. 

If you are picking your child up early, please send a note to your child’s teacher in the agenda.

If there are obstacles preventing your child from regularly attending school, please reach out to the school.  We can work with families to help improve attendance.  

The school is required to inform the Provincial Attendance Board of any students with chronic attendance or punctuality problems.
