Security

School Access

When dropping your children off, please do so at their designated student entry/exit door, not through the main entrance. Entry/exit doors for each class will be communicated at the beginning of the school year. For safety reasons, the main door is locked at all times. All other doors are locked after normal arrival times. If your child arrives late please take them to the main entry doors at the front of the school and send them to the office to receive a late pass.

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. Please note that, under no circumstances, can a visitor (including parents) go to the classrooms without checking-in to the office first.

If a student is required for an appointment, the office staff will call the student to the office when you arrive. If you would like to help in the classroom, please make arrangements with the classroom teacher, once you have received your police security clearance.

Signing Out Children

If you come to the school to pick up your child for appointments, etc., it is extremely important that you sign them out at the office. For children who ride the bus, please sign them out in the appropriate bus column no later than 3:40 p.m. as this helps to ensure the bus drivers receive the information in a timely fashion.

Supervision

Just a reminder that there is no regular supervision of students outside before 8:55 AM. We do not provide supervision for students dropped off early and cannot accommodate parents arriving early with their children except for occasional and extreme situations. There is no supervision after school for students being picked up, inside or outside. With so many students riding the bus, supervision is provided for this, but does not extend to parent pick-ups. Ensure that if you are picking up a child, that a note has been included in the child’s agenda.

Before school clubs provide supervision only for the students involved and parents must make arrangements for siblings to arrive at school at the regular time.

Fire Drills

Students are taught fire drill procedures in their classes. We are required to hold a minimum of six fire drills per year. Other than the first drill, these events will be a surprise to staff and students. It is important that children have indoor shoes as they won't have time to put on their outdoor footwear in the event of a drill.

​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.

RT @Indigenous_cbe: Today is fall equinox - a time when daylight & nighttime share the sky equally. Today is also Treaty 7 Day - the 144th anniversary of the signing of Treaty 7. The 🌞 & 🌙s equality today teaches us how to honour the treaty...by walking together in equal partnership. #welcomeoko https://t.co/7nUdmGVAVL
