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. 

If a student is required for an appointment, the office staff will call the student to the office when you arrive. If you would like to help in the classroom, please make arrangements with the classroom teacher once you have received your police security clearance.

Fire Drills

Staff and students practice evacuating the school in response to the ringing of our fire alarm a minimum of 6 times each school year. Teachers have identified muster points away from the school where they will meet their class for attendance to be taken. 

Supervision

Supervision is provided at 7:35 AM before school and during both morning and lunch recesses. We also supervise students at the end of the day as they locate and board their buses.

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.
