Messages for Students / Staff

Rimbey Elementary has  an auto attendant for incoming phone calls. RES has a school population of 400+ (students and staff) and we want to avoid interrupting classes to deliver non emergent reminder messages to students during the day. Please assist us by making sure that students are aware of any special after school arrangements, either verbally or written in his/her agenda or via a note, prior to leaving for school in the morning.  As well, please remember that our staff is often on supervision throughout the day and may not be able to check voice or e-mail messages until after students have been dismissed at the end of the day, or a staff member may be absent from school and a substitute would not have access to that message.  With this in mind parents are not to leave voice or e-mail messages that are time sensitive (need to be delivered prior to dismissal) but rather speak with the school office personnel directly for occasional unexpected emergency after school arrangements for your child. 

  • Do not leave a message on any extension if it is time sensitive. Messages may not be retrieved until after school hours at 3:15 p.m., or next day if staff member is absent.

Thank you for your assistance with regards to this.

If your child is absent or late we ask that you call the school at 403-843-3751 and leave a message. Our school has a 24 hour auto attendant. Please note that auto attendance line is not to be used should you wish to deliver a message regarding student pickup arrangements.

Please know that any student who has symptoms of COVID-19 such as fever, cough, runny nose, sore throat, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing must stay home from school. Families should self screen for COVID-19, before leaving for school. A full list of symptoms, isolation requirements based on symptoms, and daily screening for COVID-19 checklist can be found on our WCPS website at www.wolfcreek.ab.ca

You can also leave a voicemail message with your child's teacher by calling 403-783-5441 and following the prompts, with the voicemail prompts you will need to spell your child's teacher name in order to access their voicemail. 

If you are needing a message to be delivered to your child prior to home time, please do not leave a voicemail message as time sensitive messages may not be accessed until after dismissal time.  A staff member may be absent that day and would not have access to deliver the required message.
