Lockers

All students will have the use of a hall locker at school and must use the school locks provided. Rental fees are charged  and will be billed at the beginning of the year.  If students lose or damage the locks they will need to pay for the replacement.

Physical Education

All students have physical education classes weekly.  Students are required to change into an appropriate shirt, shorts or sweat pants and proper running shoes for these classes.  The school has gym strip available for purchase.
Each student will have a locker in the locker room.  Locks are provided by the school but will have to be paid for if they are lost or broken.

Late and Absent Students

If your child is going to be late or absent, please call the office at (403) 777-7370 and press 1 for the absence line.  Please slowly and clearly spell the child’s first and last name and state the reason for the absence as well as your relationship to the student.  Please ensure that you are not using a hands-free device and that the phone you are using is clear of static and noise so that we can understand the message. If we can’t understand your message the student’s absence will be recorded as unexcused.

Any unexcused absences will receive a call and/or e-mail home notifying parents or guardians of the absence. 

Extended Absence Policy

It is our responsibility to ensure families understand the effect that unnecessary absences may have on a student’s education.

If the student will be away more than three days, an appointment with the Principal or Assistant Principal is required and an Extended Absence Notice form must be completed and signed by the student, parents, teachers, Principal and Assistant Principal.  The form must be completed at least two weeks prior to the student’s absence.

It is the student’s responsibility to complete and keep up to date with all assigned homework, reading and on-line work as per the homework plan outlined by the teacher before the absence.  Extra time will not be available in class to catch up on any work missed.

Student Drop Off

Only school buses, CBE employees, and emergency vehicles are to use the staff parking lot.

Please do not park in the staff parking lot when visiting the school.

Please make sure you use the turnabout in front of Holy Family School when picking up and dropping off students.  The area in front of Sir Wilfrid Laurier needs to be clear for buses at all times.  See the diagram below.
