Visitors & Volunteers

All visitors & volunteers are required to sign-in at the school office. 

Volunteers, each time you visit, you are required to sign-in using the volunteer logbook located in the main office. They are also required to wear volunteer tag at all times while volunteering.

Locked Doors

All outside doors are locked at all times. When outside with students, staff members unlock doors using their door pass cards to allow entry into the building. 

Throughout the day, visitors and students who are arriving for breakfast or after the bell are to use the front door of the school to gain entry. The video monitored entry system allows office personnel to monitor and admit arrivals. Individuals wishing to gain entry to the school press the appropriate doorbell button. A video camera displays the individual’s image on a screen in the office. 

A secondary doorbell is available for use when school personnel are away from the office or during after hours events. This bell rings throughout the building.

Supervision

Students should plan to arrive at school between 8:25 and 8:40 AM and between 12:45 and 1:00 PM unless they are in school-organized events. Teacher supervision is provided during these time periods. In the interest of safety, students are advised to leave the playground when dismissed after school and check in at home before going for play dates.

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.
