We take safety and security seriously. It is important that we maintain a safe and caring community so that learning can take place.

All Visitors & Volunteers

Must sign-in at the office.

As per CBE policy, parents, guardians, volunteers or family members who come into the school for any reason are asked to sign in at the office. In the event of any emergencies, we are then aware of who is in the building. Unannounced visits or phone calls during classroom time create a great deal of disruption to the learning environment. Therefore we request that you please go to the office upon your arrival at the school and the Dr. Oakley staff will be happy to assist you. In order to provide a safe and secure school for our students, name tags will be provided for both parent volunteers and visitors to our school. Your cooperation is appreciated.

In order to ensure school security, all exterior doors will be locked after school commences each day. Anyone who is not a student or school staff member is required to sign-in.

Student Searches

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.

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.
