Frequently Asked Questions
Information for Parents:
Parents/guardians must telephone the school at 780.973.3301 (24 hr.) to inform us of a student’s absence. Please leave a message if you do not reach a receptionist. If a student is in the building or on school property, they cannot be excused/confirmed absent from a class by a parent.
Avoidable Extended Absences
Parents and guardians sometimes choose to take students out of the school for extended periods of time for the purpose of vacations, working at a place of employment, or other avoidable reasons. In these situations, the school may not excuse these absences. Select the following link to learn about the responsibilities and expectations for all students away from school on avoidable extended absences.

School Council meetings will be rescheduled if the planned meeting date coincides with a holiday. Click here for more information.

A mid-term report card is issued each semester prior to parent-teacher interviews (please refer to calendar); final report cards are issued at the end of each semester.

In the first term, reports are issued in November and February. In the second term report cards are distributed in April and mailed in June. Parents are encouraged to discuss their children’s education. Parents may also make, an appointment to see any teacher; please call 780.973.3301 to book an appointment.
