Visitors, Parents & Volunteers

For the safety and security of staff and students, visitors are required to check in at the main office. Visitors to the school are required to sign the visitor book and wear visitor identification while in the school.

Secure Door Policy

For student safety, all doors, including the front door, will be locked upon the commencement of classes. Please do not prop open secured doors or seek access through them. The office may be accessed by using the doorbell/speaker on the panel to the right of the door.

Playground Supervision

Supervision of students on the playground is provided at 8:05 AM and 12:40 PM. To ensure student safety, students are requested not to arrive at school prior to these times. Students using the playground after 3:08 PM are assumed to have parental permission and supervision thus parents are responsible for their safety. We encourage students to report home immediately after school.

Fire Drills

Fire drills are held on a regular basis. Staff and students discuss and practice these procedures before the actual drill. Drills are scheduled without warning. Students should always wear some type of indoor footwear, as some drills require the evacuation of the building. Students are expected to be quiet and orderly during drills so that directions can be given and attendance can be taken.

Please note:  All individuals in the building are expected to exit during an evacuation drill and participate in lockdown procedures.

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.
