Students in the Calgary Board of Education travel to school in a variety ways, including walking, taking yellow buses or Calgary Transit or being driven by parents/guardians. Their safety is important, no matter how they get to school and home again.​​​

Getting to School

Getting to School at Eric Harvie

Eric Harvie School is located at 357 Tuscany Drive NW, Calgary AB. Our school is designated as a walk-zone only school, meaning that no bus transportation is provided by the CBE. 

For general information about CBE Transportation please visit the website.

Cold Weather Reminder!

Please review our Cold Weather Days policy for more information.

Getting a Ride

For students that are being driven to and from school, we ask that both the drivers and students follow the safety recommendations in Parking and Drop-Off.

Bicycles, Skateboards, & Rollerblades

Students are welcome to ride bicycles to school – this is a wonderful mode of transportation for both personal and planetary health! Students do need to bring a lock for their bikes and lock them in the bike racks for the school day to ensure security of their property. Children are not allowed to ride their bikes on school property  - they must dismount and walk their bikes to ensure their own safety and the safety of other small children walking on the school grounds too.

Skateboard may not be used on school grounds.  Students may use their skateboards to and from school on the sidewalks, but upon arrival at school they must dismount and pick up their skateboards to bring them inside. Students will need to ask their teacher(s) about a possible storage spot in the classroom or hallway. Skateboards may NOT be touched or used inside the school. Skateboards will be indefinitely confiscated if students are not respectful of their peers by honouring these guidelines.

Students may use rollerblades to travel to and from school but they must be removed as soon as students arrive at the school, carried inside and safely stored in a location agreed to by the student and their teacher. NO rollerblades are allowed on school property. 

Walking School Bus Possibilities

Several families have independently established successful walking school bus-like arrangements in their neighbourhoods – good news for our school! If you are interested in becoming involved in establishing new routes through the Eric Harvie School Council, please send an email of interest to ehschoolcouncilchair.gmail.com.

Before and After School Care

The CBE does not operate daycare or before and after school (out of school) programs. However, a before and after school care program is offered by Coded Minds Canada, a third-party operator, in our school.
