Security

Visitors & Volunteers Sign-In

All parents, visitors and volunteers must report directly to the office and receive a visitor card before proceeding to other areas of the school. This is an additional security measure to keep our school safe. Please note that, under no circumstances, can a visitor (including parents) go to the classrooms without checking-in to the office first.

Student Arrival & Supervision

Students are supervised by school staff fifteen minutes before school in the morning and at lunch, and during recess. Students registered for noon supervision are supervised throughout the lunch hour. We ask that students arrive between 8:55 and 9:10 AM, thereby ensuring they are supervised and on time for school. Kindergarten and Grade 1 students who ride yellow school buses are greeted, escorted to their entrance doors and supervised by school staff.

Student Safety

Articles such as knives, bean shooters, cap pistols, toy guns, water pistols, hard balls, baseball bats, etc., can be dangerous if handled improperly and as such, these items should not be brought to school. CBE regulations require that principal approval is obtained before any pets or other animals are brought on to school property. Posted city bylaw signs prohibit dogs on the playground.

​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.
