Student Absences/School Connects
Parent and guardians are asked to notify the office before 9:00 am and/or 1:00 pm when a child is late or absent. The school phone number is 403-500-2065.
If a parent has not informed the school, SchoolConnects will notify you by phone and email whenever your child is absent from class to ensure the student’s safety. These phone calls are usually made to your home phone in the morning/afternoon. Feel free to use the school answering machine to leave a message, but be sure to state a reason for the absence. Thank you!
Late students must check in at the front office and pick up a late slip. Late students will not be admitted to class without a late slip.
Students who must leave during the school day for an appointment must be signed out from the office by a parent or guardian. When the student returns to school they must stop by the front office to pick up a late slip so that the teacher knows that the student has checked in with the front office.
Our school day begins at 8:40 a.m. and students must arrive punctually to begin the day. Supervision begins at 8:25. Please do not drop your child off before 8:25. We do not provide extended supervision before or after school. Parents are responsible for children at this time.
We will also be using SchoolConnects to send announcements and emergency messages as required. These messages may go out at any time. If you have a cell phone, you can have SchoolConnects call your cell to ensure that you personally get the messages. Please make sure your contact phone numbers and email addresses are up to date.
When you receive calls from the system, Call Display shows the phone number from the school or from the Calgary Catholic school district. When SchoolConnects reaches an answering machine, it plays the message twice in case the beginning is cut off.
We are excited about using SchoolConnects to enhance communication and improve the quality of education for your child.
