Volunteers and Visitors

All volunteers and visitors must sign in at the office before going into the classrooms. This process helps us know where you are in case of an emergency and allows staff and students to know you have signed in with the office staff by wearing your volunteer/visitor badge. 

In order to ensure school security, all exterior doors will be locked after school commences each day at 9:10 AM. Anyone needing entry during the school day must do so through the office–this includes parents and students. 

Student Supervision

For the protection and safety of children, the Alberta School Act and the Calgary Board of Education require that students be supervised at school. This requirement is stringent for Kindergarten through Grade 6 students. 

Kindergarten to Grade 6

Student supervision on school grounds and on the playground begins at 8:55 AM. Students should not arrive or dropped off prior to that time. Once students have been dismissed for the day, they are expected to move off the grounds and be on their way home.

Dropping off and picking up of Children

For the safety and the overall reduction of congestion, the staff parking lot is not to be used for dropping off or picking up students. The ramp/staff parking lot is for busses and daycare vans only. Parents should park on the street or utilize safety drop-off/pick up children at the front of the school. All visitors to the school must park on the street or at the hockey rink, next to the school.

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.
