Security

Our first priority at Cedarbrae School is to ensure the safety of all students, staff and volunteers. In order to better monitor who is in our building we ask for your help in the following.

School Access

All Grade 1- 6 students need to enter and exit the school using the doors facing west and north. This allows the front doors to be accessible to visitors, for the patrol team to make their way to the crosswalk and to ensure that access into the school is monitored for the safety and security of all.

The doors will be locked and students will be invited in at bell time. Students who are late will need to go through the front doors and check-in at the office. Lunchroom staff will ensure students have access to washrooms during the lunch recess.

Visitors & Volunteers

All visitors and volunteers are required to check-in at the office upon their arrival at school. This includes all volunteers and parents who have appointments with their child's teacher. If you don't have an appointment, we ask that you not plan on dropping in on teachers during class time.

All volunteers need to have a security check done before working in the classroom and we would ask that you sign in and wear your name tag while in the building. Name tags are in the office at the volunteer table. Volunteers are at the invitation of teachers if they are wishing to work in the classroom.

Drop-Off & Pick-Up

When dropping-off or picking up students, before or after school, please wait outside the building. Parents are required to sign out their child in the office if they need to pick them up during school hours. On bad weather days students will be invited into the entrances 15 minutes before the bell.

Playground Supervision

Please note that teacher supervisors are on duty at 8:04 - 8:19 AM, during recess and from 12:15 - 12:30 PM over lunchtime. Students should not arrive prior to 8:04 AM and should go home immediately after school unless their own caregiver is available to supervise on the playground.

Court Orders

If custody is an issue, please make sure that the school has the appropriate legal documentation on file.

Fire Drills

Fire drills are conducted at least 6 times annually so that children are trained in appropriate procedures. During fire drills children are to remain silent at all times, move to the correct exit, then go to their assigned areas outdoors. Ensure your child has indoor shoes, as there is no stopping to put on footwear during 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.
