Security

Visitors & Volunteers

All visitors and volunteers must sign-in at the main office. You will also be asked to wear visible identification at all times. If you need to speak to your child, office staff will call your child down to meet you. Please do not go to your child's classroom and wait by the door as this is very distracting for students and teachers.

Playground Supervision

Playground supervision is provided three times each day.

  • 8:25 AM – 8:40 AM
  • 10:45 AM – 11:00 AM
  • 12:45 PM – 1:00 PM

Students are not to come to school before supervision starts. At the end of the day, students are expected to go home directly when they are dismissed in the afternoon. There is no formal supervision after school.

Outside Bell Warning Indicators

Continuous Ringing 

If you are coming to school and the outside bell is ringing continuously, do not let your children out of the car or bring them to the school. Continuous ringing of the bell is a warning sign that there is a threat inside the school.

Three Rings

Three rings of the outside bell means it is unsafe outside and students are to immediately come in to the school. Once students have been brought inside the school, there will no be further outside access to the school until the unsafe condition has passed.

No Students or Staff Outside

Please make sure that you bring your child around to the office if no one is outside. It may be a non-student day, an inside recess, or some other reason that we have kept students inside. Also, students are not to be dropped off before 7:45 AM as there is no outside supervision before that time.

Back Doors

Only students and staff may use the school's back doors. CBE requires all visitors to the school to check-in at the office by coming in from the front entrance. Please help us ensure the safety of all our students and staff by following this rule.

​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.
