Reporting Student Absences

Attendance and Absences

As part of our Safe and Caring School Initiative, when your child is absent from school, please remember to let us know by one of the following methods:


  1. Phone 403-823-3485 and talk to the receptionist.
  2. Phone 403-823-3485 and leave a message in our attendance mailbox.
  3. Send an email to and your child’s teacher.
  4. Send a written message to your child’s teacher, if you know ahead of time.

When you have notified us that a student is away, it is recorded as an excused absence. If we do not hear from you, we attempt to contact a parent/guardian by phone and leave a message if possible.  If we are unable to confirm the reason for the student being away, it is recorded as an unexcused absence.
