Locked Doors for Safety

All doors to the school are locked after school commences each day. Children arriving late enter by the front door and
report to the office.

Visitors & Volunteers Sign-In

All parents, visitors and volunteers must report directly to the office and receive a visitor card before proceeding to other areas of the school. This is an additional security measure to keep our school safe. Please note that, under no circumstances, can a visitor (including parents) go to the classrooms without checking-in to the office first.

Supervision & Dismissal

We have teacher supervision from 7:45-8:00 a.m. and during morning recess 10:05-10:25 (Grades 1 - 5). Please note that we do not have after school supervision. Our bus supervisors will complete a sweep after the bus dismissal. Students will be informed that the front office doors are open after 2:45. Students in Kindergarten and Grade 1 must have a parent to be released to. If your child takes the bus in K and Grade 1 he/she will be escorted to the bus at the end of the school day. Grade 2 students will have a slow transition to foster independence and will follow the same procedure until the beginning of October. If your child is in Grades 2 - 5 and has permission to walk home alone, please write a message in your child’s agenda. 

Early Dismissal of Individual Students

A student may not leave the school before regular dismissal without permission. Students who need to leave for appointments or other reasons must bring a note to the teacher. Parents taking children out of school early are required to sign the student out at the office. Upon arrival back at school, the student is required to sign-in at the school office. 

After-School Arrangements

Please ensure your children go home, to the babysitter’s or to day-care immediately after dismissal. Visits to other students’ homes, extracurricular activities, etc., should be arranged at home before students leave for school. 

Emergency Drills

Regular fire drills, and Emergency Lock Downs will be held throughout the year to practice student safety procedures. Some will be announced and discussed with students and staff prior to them taking place, and some will be unannounced. Should it be necessary to leave or evacuate the school (e.g. a water main break) students will be escorted to our alternate locations.

Lockdowns

All CBE schools are required to practice lockdowns in the same way that we practice fire drills. The procedures for lockdowns are developed with the Calgary Police Service and are part of each school’s Emergency Response Plan. If you have questions about lockdown drills or lockdown procedures, please contact your principal.
 

Evacuation Procedures

In the event that the school needs to be evacuated for any reason, all staff have been trained according to CBE standards. All schools have a primary and a secondary evacuation site. In the event of an evacuation, you will receive an email, phone or SMS notification from the school via SchoolMessenger.
