General school FAQs

When does morning supervision start?

Playground supervision is available for kindergarten to Grade 6 students only beginning at 8:10 a.m. The morning bell rings at 8:25 a.m. and students should be in their classroom ready to start their day at 8:30 a.m.

Are there any tips for drop-off and pick-up times?

Many families drive their children to and from school so our parking lot is a very busy place. Ensure you arrive early. Follow all traffic rules, signage and respect our neighbours’ driveways and private property.

School Uniform FAQs

What are the different uniform types?

Formal uniform is a combination of uniform pieces worn during special events such as assemblies, the first day back to school after the summer, winter and spring breaks, most field trips, classroom guests and key days throughout the year. 
Regular uniform is worn on most non-formal days. Summer uniform pieces are optional and may be worn in lieu of the regular uniform during certain times of the year. 

Organizational Strength and Permanence

head of school margaret dorranceDear families,

I hope your summer has been filled with time for family and relaxation. I am excited to see the students return in a week’s time. While the students were enjoying their well-deserved respite during the summer months, school employees continued their tasks, planning and preparing for the new school year. 

Before- and After-School Program

We are excited to begin a new year of the CFIS BAS program which is licensed under the Alberta Child Care Licensing Act. We believe that the program is an extension of the school day and will maintain the same standards, expectations, and values of the CFIS school day.
