Absence Reporting

Regular attendance and punctuality are necessary for success at school. Illness or other unavoidable circumstances are excusable absences. It is important for parents to assist the school by encouraging regular attendance and phoning in to report excusable absences. We track student attendance and punctuality twice a day. Students are responsible for catching up on work missed during an absence. 

Procedures are as follows:

  1. Twice daily, a record of student absences and lates are forwarded to the office by the teacher advisors.
  2. A record is kept by the secretarial staff.
  3. Students are expected to be punctual. Those who are late will be subject to these actions:
  4. Students who arrive late must sign in at the office and pick up a late slip or they will be marked absent.
  5. A phone call to advise the school of student illness, medical/dental appointments, etc. is required. Our secretaries will contact parents regarding any students who are absent without prior notification.

Parents: a telephone message recording service is activated after regular school hours; please call 780.460.3728 or email to record an excusable absence. Be sure to:

  1. Identify yourself
  2. Identify student (full name)
  3. Identify the student's ID number
  4. Give details of the excusable absence
