Attendance - Every School Day Counts

Students should arrive at school five minutes before the first bell at 8:22 am in the morning and 12:40 pm in the afternoon.

Parents are asked to notify the school when a child will be absent. 

With SafeArrival, you are asked to report your child’s absence (in advance or before morning bell time) using one of these 3 convenient methods:

1. Call the automated interactive telephone system via a toll-free number 1-844-818-9908 to report an absence.

2. Log into the website,, to access the SafeArrival website where an account can be set up to report absences.

3. Set up a SafeArrival account then download the Greater St. Albert Schools app to quickly and conveniently report absences from your mobile device.

Each homeroom teacher forwards the names of absent children who are unaccounted for to the office. If you have not made your child's absence  known, you will be contacted via Safe Arrival. Please stop by our office for a Release form when you are taking your child during the day. 

It is important that you update the school with changes of address, telephone numbers and emergency contacts.

Office hours are from 08:00 am to 3:45 pm.
