About Our Schedule

Our Entwistle class blocks are 33 minutes in length. We have morning, lunch, and an afternoon recess. Students in junior high are permitted to leave school property at the start of lunch recess if signed consent has been turned into the office. Students who live in town may go home at the start of lunch if signed consent has been turned into the office. Leaving school during the school day is a privilege, and not a right. School administration has the right to remove and/or suspend these privileges as required.

Attendance is Important

Learning works best when all of our students are in class and on-time. Entwistle students are responsible to make sure that they are supervised at all times. We know that sometimes students are delivered late to school. When this happens, please check in at the office and let us know you’re here. You should also know that for the purpose of attendance, three lates are equal to one day of missed school. Try your best to always be on time!

If a student’s attendance drops below 85% (if they miss too many days), school administration will discuss the student’s attendance with the child’s parents and try to solve the problem. If together we cannot solve the problem, we will access Parkland School Division’s attendance officer to set up a meeting with school administration, the student, and the student’s parents. Students are legally required to be at school, and if they are missing too much school, the Alberta Government steps in to solve the problem.

Sometimes parents may pull students out of school for a vacation that happens during school days. Parents are asked to please discuss the absence with the homeroom teacher or principal and to notify the school secretary.
