Attendance Policy

All students are encouraged and expected to attend school on a daily basis.

If a student must be absent or late, his or her parent/guardian should contact the school before 8:45 a.m. We have an answering machine on which you can leave messages for absences or late arrivals. Our phone number is 403-845-2836. Students with unexplained or continual attendance/lateness problems, both at school opening or after lunch, may be considered truant and will be referred to a school administrator.

During school hours, students are required to notify the school office before leaving the school. Permission will be given to leave the school if the parent/guardian is present or can be reached by telephone or if the student produces written parental permission. In cases involving elementary students, the note should specify whether the student is to leave the school with an adult other than the parent or legal guardian.
