Student Attendance

Regular attendance is crucial to success in school. As per Section 12(b) of the Alberta School Act, students are to attend school regularly and punctually.

Students have an obligation to contribute to, as well as, benefit from, the learning experience. Irregular attendance curtails a student’s ability to contribute, and often, hinders the progress of the class.

The responsibility for regular attendance lies with the student. Upon registering at Canmore Collegiate, students make a commitment to attend regularly, be punctual and perform up to their ability. Students must also accept the consequences of their actions should they choose not to accept this responsibility.

The role of the parent is to guide, reinforce and encourage regular attendance and to make the student aware of the consequence of nonattendance.

Parents are required to call the school on the day of each absence or to send a note to the school within 24 hours following the absence. The school will contact the home to report unverified absences.

In those instances where a student will be missing an extended period of time, parents should contact the school as far in advance as is possible.

Only those absences verified by a parent immediately following the absence will be excused. All other absences will be considered unexcused.

 

 The Parent Portal shows a daily update of your child’s mark in each course. If you have not yet activated your Parent Portal please do so once this information arrives in the mail this week. Student final report cards will be delivered through parent portal at the end of June.

-  Local telephone line for student use is in the hallway outside the office.

-  EVERY DAY - Lunch Specials in the cafeteria – Punch cards for lunch available – contact the office for more information.
