ID Cards/Lanyards

Nelson Mandela is a lanyard school.

ID Cards and Lanyards are part of Mandela’s safety protocol. Our proximity to the Genesis Centre and CTrain Station could result in individuals who are not students or staff at Mandela trespassing in the school. As such, all students are required to wear their student ID on the school lanyard provided. This is to be worn correctly around their neck and
must be visible. Students may not substitute the School Lanyard for a lanyard of another type or design.

Students who forget their ID need to return home to get it, or make arrangements to have their ID brought to the school. Lost ID cards may be replaced at the business office at a cost to the student.

The ID card is used for signing out library books, accessing technology, attending student events, writing exams and accessing the Genesis Centre.

Leaving Class for an Appointment

If you leave the building during class time for an appointment please sign out in the office. If you are under 18 please have your parent phone in prior to the appointment to excuse and explain your absence.

Visitors & Volunteers

Parents, volunteers and others must report to the main office to sign in and receive a visitor pass

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.
