The Alberta School Act requires attendance at school for eligible students. In addition to this legal requirement, St. Augustine School recognizes that regular school attendance is critical to student academic excellence and personal growth.
Excused Absences (Illness, Vacation, Medical Appointments)
Please notify both your child’s homeroom teacher and the office of any absences or late arrivals to the office 403-500-2022 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Attendance and punctuality are very important. Please respect other’s health by keeping your child home when they are ill. Please call our school at 403-500-2022 if your child will be away due to illness or a doctor’s appointment. You can always leave a message on our answering machine if you call before or after school hours. You can also send us an email email@example.com if your child will be away for any reason.
School Messenger is an automated attendance call-out system. The system will notify you by phone and email when you did not inform the school of your child's absence. These phone calls are usually made to your home phone/cell phone in the morning (9:45 am) and afternoon (1:30 pm).
