Security

School Access

For safety reasons, please ensure your child does not arrive at school prior to 7:45 AM and 11:50 AM because outdoor supervision by authorized personnel is not scheduled until those times. Students should not arrive at school before supervisors are on duty.

All doors to the school, with the exception of the front door, will be locked after school commences each day.  All students will enter the building through their assigned doors. Children arriving late must be escorted into the school with a parent/guardian through the front door and report to the office.  Parents must sign their child in.

Legal Custody Documentation

If you have legal custody of your child(ren), please make sure the school has the appropriate, up-to-date documentation on file. This is required in order to clearly identify who has legal access and is therefore entitled to review the student record.

Visitors & Volunteers Sign-In 

All visitors must sign in the office upon arrival and wear their volunteer tag which is in the office. When leaving, volunteers must sign out and return volunteer tag. 

Parents and visitors are not permitted to enter classroom or hallway areas during instructional time.

All volunteers must complete a volunteer registration form and a police security clearance form in the office before volunteering.  Two pieces of identification, including photo ID, must be presented at that time.  Please check with the school secretary if you require further information. Security clearances are valid for 5 years.

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.
