We take safety and security seriously. It is important that we maintain a safe and caring community so that learning can take place.
Visitors & Volunteers
Centennial High School is a closed campus. This means that all visitors to the school, including parents, must go to the Main Office immediately upon arrival. Anyone waiting to meet a Centennial student will be asked to wait quietly in the Main Office or off the school property. Unauthorized people on school property may be charged with trespassing. The Education Act provides for significant substantial fines for individuals trespassing on school property.
Student Identification Cards (ID)
All students will be provided an ID card which must be carried at all times while in the school and on school property. ID cards must be visible at all times. They are required for the library, examinations and may be required at other school functions. Students must show their ID card to any staff member or school resource officer upon request, and must comply with this request in the interest of safety and security.
Note: Student ID may also be required by Calgary Transit to access their services.
Lost or Stolen ID Card
If an ID card is lost or stolen, students are responsible to pick-up a replacement at the office for a cost of $5.00.
The details of any accident are to be reported immediately, either to a teacher or to the Main Office for appropriate documentation and/or communication.
In the event that school safety and security is a concern administration has the right to complete searches of student lockers, student property or personal belongings at any time.
School Resource Officer
The role of the Resource Officer is to provide guidance and act as a legal resource for teachers, students, parents/guardians and the community at large. Part of this role is to encourage communication and greater understanding among young people and the Calgary Police Service.
We recommend that medical/dental appointments be made outside the regular school day. If students know they will need to leave early, their parents/guardians must either call the absence line 403-256-8140, ext.1, send the student with a note, or pick-up the student and personally sign the student out.
