Visitors & Volunteers

Safety and security for students at Olympic Heights School is a priority. Visitors to the school must sign-in at the front office and wear a visitor’s pass. At the beginning and end of the school day we request that parents and visitors wait at the front of the school or outside for their child and not at the classroom. In order to avoid congestion at the end of the day inside the school, we ask that parents of Grade 1-6 students arrange a meeting place to meet your child outside. Kindergarten students are walked either to the bus or outside in the courtyard through the K doors.

School doors continue to be locked at all times. We have a buzzer to ring when requesting entrance to the school at the main doors. There are two buzzers, one from 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM and one for after 4:00 PM.

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.
