We take safety and security seriously. It is important that we maintain a safe and caring community so that learning can take place.
Visitors & Volunteers
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.
All students receive an ID courtesy of FLHS. All students are required to produce ID when asked. Students who have lost their ID will need to purchase a new ID through the Business Office, for a cost of $3. Students also require ID to sign out text books. Students can identify staff at FLHS by their ID that should be visible at all times.
Access into the school will be limited after 9:30 am. All doors but the main entrance will be locked at 9:30 am
All visitors and guests MUST sign in at the Main Office. Anyone appearing unfamiliar to staff and administration will be asked to produce ID and will be escorted out of the building if deemed they have no business in our school. Trespassing charges may also be laid.
It is important to note that FLHS does have a security system that includes closed circuit video monitoring. Be advised that your actions within our school are monitored via video surveillance.
Safety Policies & Procedures
Students and staff will regularly rehearse and prepare for emergency situations including fire, lockdown and evacuations. Students are expected to comply with all direction from staff during these drills—failure to do so will result in disciplinary action. In the event of an actual emergency situation it is of great importance that students comply with all direction. Failure to do so may not only result in disciplinary action, but may actually result in causing significant harm to oneself or others. No student has the right to interfere with the safety and security of any other student or staff member.
Emergency procedures will be reviewed in Connects. Students are encouraged to ask for clarification during these sessions.
The details of any accident are to be reported immediately, either to a teacher or to the Main Office for appropriate documentation and/or communication.
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.
School Resource Officer
The role of the Resource Officer is to provide guidance and act as a legal resource for teachers, students, parents/guardians and the community at large. Part of this role is to encourage communication and greater understanding among young people and the Calgary Police Service.
