Security

Visitors & Volunteers

Our school is a closed campus. All visitors and volunteers must report directly to the main office to sign-in and request permission from the school administration to be in the school. This process helps us know where you are in case of an emergency. For safety reasons, when volunteering we ask that all adults sign in at the office first and wear a volunteer tag at all times.

Supervision

Supervision begins in the morning 15 minutes prior to school starting. For your child's safety and protection, please do not bring or send your child prior to this time as they cannot be left outside unsupervised. 

Classroom Interruptions & Messages

Teachers have asked that we do not interrupt instructional time with messages for students. The classroom is a learning environment. When interruptions occur, students are often distracted and taken off task. All communication with students must filter through the office first. This includes such things as messages, forgotten lunches, homework, pickup, and end of day arrangements. 

Please check in with the office to sign out your child when picking him/her up for appointments and the office staff will call the classroom. For safety and security reasons, do not go directly to the classroom. 

Legal Custody Concerns

Custody issues must be clearly communicated to school staff. Legal papers to this effect must be provided for the child's file. Any changes to these papers or to the wishes of the custodial parent must come in writing with a signature. If no legal papers are in the child’s file stating otherwise, people showing proof of legal guardianship or parental rights will be granted access to their child and any school related information.

​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.
