School Property

We take great pride in keeping a tidy school; both inside and out. We ask all our students to be good citizens by putting garbage and recycling where it belongs, and helping to keep our classrooms and playground clean.

Smoking is not permitted on CBE property. Parents and family members may not smoke anywhere outside of the school. This includes the sidewalk at the front of the school. Your cooperation is both appreciated and expected.

Playground Rules & Expectations

The small playground on the east side of the school is to be enjoyed by Kindergarten students only. Grade 1-6 students use the large playground on the West side of the school and supervision is guided by the expectations of the Three Pillars of Care.

Students who experience difficulty respecting the three pillars will be timed out briefly. If challenges persist, an incident report that outlines the incident and consequences will be sent home to parents for signature and return. Only games that are safe (no grounders, tag games or eyes closed) are to be played on the creative playgrounds.

Any games that require a wall will be played on the compound area or against the large West gym wall. When under school supervision, students will stay in bounds. The paved sidewalk and bike path make up the West and North boundaries. The fence is the East boundary. Just beyond the soccer poles represents the South boundary. During lunch hour, if Grade 1-6 students require the washroom they enter through the compound door to use the washrooms.

Bicycles are to be walked to the bike racks and locked up for safety. If students ride to school they must wear a bicycle helmet. All other wheeled methods of movement are not permitted for safety and security reasons. 

Students must go directly home after school. If they wish to return, they can do so, with parent permission. There is no school supervision on the playground or field after school.
