Student Absent Procedures

Attendance

As per the Alberta School Act, attendance is compulsory, and necessary for success. Attendance wiil be taken during each of the Homeroom periods.  A phone call to the school from a parent/guardian is required when students will be absent or late.

Students leaving the school before the end of the school day are required to be signed out by a parent or guardian.

If a student is late, or returns after being signed out, they are required to sign back before going to class. We require written permission from a parent/guardian for alternate transportation.

Extended Absence

Whenever a parent or guardian anticipates that a student will be absent for prolonged periods of time for reasons other than illness, (for example, to attend a family event or go on a family trip), a "Request for Leave" form is to be completed and submitted to the office.

The Request for Leave form allows teachers to give students instructions regarding missed work, or to plan for the writing of tests when the student returns.
