Security

Parents, Visitors & Volunteers

All parents and all visitors must report to the Main Office.

The safety of our children and staff is our first priority and must come before the convenience of others. Parents are reminded that they should check in at the office if you require your child to be called out of class or to drop off lunches.  Office staff will gladly contact the classroom to request that your child comes to the office. We will also ensure that your child receives his/her lunch. Parents who pick up their child for an appointment are asked to sign out their child in the ‘Sign-Out Book’ in the office.

Designated Entrance and Exit Doors

All students are expected to wait outside, on the playground and/or the compound at the back of the school, for the 8:40 AM and 1:00 PM bell to ring, except during ‘blue days’. We encourage parents and / or care providers to say goodbye to their children in Grade 1/2, at the outside designated doors to help us foster student independence, responsibility and respect for school rules and routines and to alleviate crowding in our hallways. When the bell rings, students are required to go to their designated door and enter the school under a staff member’s supervision.

Main Entrance Door

The Main Entrance Door is designated for staff, volunteers, guests, parents, mail deliveries, etc., and students who are late.  Our school is a secure facility. When you arrive at the main doors you will need to use the intercom system to the right of the door to gain entry to the school. Only when a student is late should they enter the school using the Main doors. Students must also report to the office for a late slip before going to class.

Playground Supervision

Students are supervised by staff during the playground times.  Playground supervision begins 10 minutes prior to bell time in the morning.  For safety reasons, students should not arrive at school before supervisors are on duty.

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.

Every time, staff have stepped up to support students and families. Thank you very much.
