November 28, 2016

Dear Parents/Guardians 

I am excited to confirm that our new school will open on Jan. 3, 2017. Students will remain in the same classes with the teachers and classmates that they’ve had since the beginning of the year.

School Hours

Please note that our school hours will change.
School will start at 8:15 a.m. and end at 2:50 p.m. Monday – Friday. We will have lunch from 11:35 a.m. - 12:35 p.m.


Students who live outside of the school’s walk zone will be eligible for transportation to the new school. Information on the walk zone can be found on our website New route maps for students who will continue to take the bus will be available before winter break on the Find My Bus Route webpage.

Please fill out the Request to Cancel School Bus Transportation form as soon as possible ONLY if your child is eligible for transportation to the new school, but will not be taking the bus. Transportation contracts for students living in the walk zone will automatically be cancelled.

Please check your My CBE Account to ensure the fees charged are for the correct length of your contract (4 months or 10 months).

If you have any questions regarding transportation please contact CBE Transportation at 403-817-7433 or

Noon Supervision

Students who live within the walk zone and will stay for lunch at the new school need to re-register for noon supervision. After Dec. 31, 2016, please visit your My CBE Account to re-register. Students who are continuing to take the bus do not need to re-register.

If you have any questions about the move to our new school please contact me at or 403-817-3564.

Dr. Roberta Bondar School is absolutely beautiful and I know it will be a wonderful place for all of our students to learn and grow.
