School Security

All classroom doors and outside doors, except the front door, are locked throughout the day as a safety and security measure. All visitors must come through the front door and sign in at the office. This way we know who has permission to be in our school. In order to ensure the safety and security of all students, no one is allowed to go to classrooms without first signing in at the office.

Visitors & Volunteers

It is our policy that all visitors and volunteers register in the main office of the school. This policy is consistent in CBE and serves dual purposes. First it assists us in keeping our students safe and also enables us to track who is in our building in the event of an emergency.

  • School doors are locked all the times for security reasons.
  • Please use the front doors of the school during school hours.
  • For safety reasons, please do not wait in the hallways or outside classrooms.
  • Students are expected to enter and exit through their designated doors unless accompanied by an adult.
  • If parents need to speak to a teacher, please come to the office so that we may contact the teacher.

Fire Drills 

The school is required to have a minimum of six fire drills each school year. These drills are designed to practice the procedures to follow if there is a threat either in or outside of the school. Parents or other visitors are expected to evacuate the building when the fire alarm is sounded and to follow directions.

Dismissal 

Students go directly home, to their caregiver or supervised after school program. Students will be dismissed at their designated doors. Please do not pick up children from their classrooms. They will meet you outside. There is no playground supervision after 2:50 PM.

School Resource Officer

We are very fortunate to continue to work with the City of Calgary Police Service (CPS) S4 Program.  The Start Smart, Stay Safe (S4) is a collaborative initiative between the CPS, CBE, Calgary Catholic School District and Mount Royal University. S4 is a proactive, strengths-based model of teaching/learning where police, families, and schools partner together to actively build positive relationships, create safe communities and prepare children for the challenges of our complex, changing world. 

Our School Resource Officer Constable Gary Hartmann has built great relationships with our students as well as taught us great lessons around positive relationships and resiliency to name a few topics.

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.
