Security

School Hours 

Students are only allowed in the building outside of regular school hours if they are involved in teacher‐supervised activities. Students are not to arrive at the school more than 20 minutes before the bell and are expected to leave the school grounds quickly after school.

Students Leaving/Returning During School Hours

All late students, regardless of reason, must sign‐in at the front desk and stamp their hand prior to returning to class. Parents are encouraged to send a note with their child to gain permission to leave during school hours for appointments, likewise to explain a student’s late or absence. It is imperative students obtain parental permission and this permission must be relayed by the parent to the office staff via a telephone call to the attendance line, email or by physically coming into the office to sign your child out. Students are not allowed to leave the school without parental permission. Emails can be sent to Mrs. Khan at kikhan@cbe.ab.ca.

Communication During School Hours 

Ensure your child is aware of all after school arrangements, play dates, pick‐ups and appointments prior to the beginning of the school day. We will not interrupt classes to give students messages.

Contingency Planning with your Child

Do you have a back‐up plan in place with your child with regards to arrangements for pick‐up after school? Talk with your child about where to look for you if you are not at the school on time. Will you be coming into the school? Should your child look for you outside? Does your child know all important phone numbers or have them in their backpack for reference? Does your child know the importance of always leaving a message on your telephone when calling you for any reason from the school? Having these contingency plans in place helps to relieve stress and disruption for your child.

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.
