Safety Week

Each year Colonel Sanders Students and Staff participate in a safety week. During this week, students have a supervised lockdown with our School Resource Officer, have a fire evacuation, walk to their alternate location, learn about bus safety, playground safety, and pedestrian safety. We thank our parents for supporting and working collaboratively with staff to help create a safe learning environment. 

School Access

We are a safe and secure school. All doors remain locked. All visitors and volunteers must enter through the front door at the garden side of the school. During school hours, please use the lower buzzer to contact the office, identify yourself, and then come in when you hear the click. We have a security camera at the front door so we can quickly admit students, guests and visitors. Once you are in the school, please proceed directly to the office.

Our office hours are 8:30 am to 4:15 pm on Monday to Thursday, and 8:30 am to 2:00 pm on Friday, or early dismissal days. The buzzer will not be answered before or after these times.

Supervision & Pick-up

The school does not provide indoor supervision before 8:55 am or after 3:43 pm. We thank all guardians and parents for meeting their students promptly at 3:43 at their exit door so that students do not become anxious and cold as they wait. Any students who are not picked up are brought into the front office so that parents can be called immediately.

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.
