Visitors & Volunteers

All visitors and volunteers must sign in and out at the main office and wear a school name tag while in the building.

School Entry and Exit

Designated entry and exit doors will be determined at the start of each school year. The doors of the school are locked during school hours. Please push the intercom button located at the front doors and wait for the door to be unlocked.

Due to COVID-19, we are attempting to eliminate unnecessary visitors. Parents, guardians, caregivers and/or siblings are asked to wait outside the school at entry and dismissal times. Parents should establish a convenient, safe, and accessible meeting spot outside the school where parents and children meet one another. Parents should remind children regularly that they should always return to the office if their parents are not at the meeting spot. Please wait at a considerable distance from the doors.

Outdoor Supervision

Supervision before school in the morning is from 8:15 to 8:30 AM. Parents should not be sending children to school before these times.

Picking Up or Dropping Off Students During School Hours

Parents are reminded that they must go directly to the office to pick students up during school hours. Parents will “sign out” their child in a record book at the office. It is helpful if you let the teacher know via a written notice or agenda message that the child will be leaving during school hours.

Students who arrive at the school after the 8:30 and 12:42 entry times need to check in at the main office.

See more on our Attendance page.

Custody / Guardianship Orders

The school will remain neutral in any custodial disputes. If custody or access has been determined by a court of law, the school must be provided with a copy of the Court Order, which will remain in effect until the Order is amended, withdrawn, or expired. Frequently, schools have not been provided with the most recent copies of Court Orders and problems can arise unless the school is advised of changes to custodial matters. You are welcome to call the school’s administrators to review this matter if you have concerns regarding current documentation.

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.


Monday, May 29 is a system-wide non-instructional day so there are no classes for CBE students. It is also the provincial election day – don’t forget to vote! Have a safe long weekend. #WeAreCBE
