Security

School Access

The outside doors to Glendale School are locked while children are in school and we are equipped with a security camera. This assists us in keeping the school safe and encourages visitors to the school to check in at the main office. If the children arrive late, they may enter at the front door and check in at the office.

Visitors & Volunteers Sign-In 

All parents and visitors are required to sign in at the office and are asked to wear a visitor/volunteer badge while in the school during the school day. Please be aware that all adults who are working with children in the school are required to complete a police security screening which is available at the office.

Supervision

Parents are asked to send children to school between 8:20 and 8:35 and between 12:40 and 12:55 p.m. unless they are in school-organized events. Teacher supervision is provided during these time periods. In the interest of safety, all children are also reminded to leave the playground and check in at home at the end of the day.

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.

BEST MORNING MEETING EVER! We opened our online learning journey this morning by acknowledging the land, and sharing this beautiful story with our entire Glendale Family! It was also so touching to hear the kids yelling ‘love you!’ before they hung up 🥰#wearecbe https://t.co/SDkUQWUN1c

RT @glendale_evans: Read this gem of a book this morning! The kids feel like a treaty needs to start with a promise, and so we spent some quiet time in the garden thinking of promises that we believe are important to keep with all living things. @glendalecbe https://t.co/DS7MfIAftV

RT @glendale_evans: We began our Literacy Workshop this morning with a multimodal choice board! Students have opportunities to engage with images, photo sets, poetry, podcasts, and short stories with multiple options to demonstrate understanding. @glendalecbe #CBEliteracy https://t.co/Mz5pKzXr2d
