NEW - Reporting Absences/Student Illness

23-24 Student Absence Reporting - School Messenger is not available

If your child will be absent, please email the school at or call 780-998-7777  to indicate that a student will be absent. When reporting an absence please provide:

  1. Student Name (first and last)
  2. Reason for absence (illness, flu or other)
  3. Duration of absence

If a student is absent without prior parental notice, parents will be prompted by phone or email to contact the school.

Please also notify your teacher with a Dojo message or a note sent with your child

For any last minute Early Departures, please call the office before you arrive so we can make arrangements for your child to come to the office for pick up. 

We are currently in the process of enabling a feature in School Engage (in PowerSchool) for reporting absences. We will keep you updated on this process.

AHS Guide for Illness in School

For information regarding student illness please click the link below to access the Alberta Health Services website which includes the following information:

"It is recommended that symptomatic individuals stay at home until they are feeling well,
are able to fully participate in all normal school activities and have reached the end of
the recommended isolation period (as applicable):

  • Respiratory Illness - Isolation recommendations can be found here
  • Gastrointestinal Illness - 48 hours after symptoms resolve
  • Rash Illness – depends on the type of rash that is present
    - Cases with rash illness do not need to be excluded if others at the school
    were already exposed to the case while infectious and the case is feeling
    well enough to fully participate in all normal school activities unless
    exclusion is specifically recommended by the AHS Public Health Outbreak
