Students in the Calgary Board of Education travel to school in a variety ways, including walking, taking yellow buses or Calgary Transit or being driven by parents/guardians. Their safety is important, no matter how they get to school and home again.​​​

Getting to School

Before and After School Care 

The CBE does not operate daycare or before and after school (out of school) programs. However, a before and after school care program is be offered by Children Come First, a third-party operator, in our school. To register or learn more visit www.childrencomefirst.ca, email kcf93@telus.net or call 584-228-4797.

Riding Bikes and Scooters to School

Students may ride their bicycles or scooters to school but must walk them once they are on school grounds. Students must also be aware of the rules of bicycle safety, including the mandatory use of helmets. Locks are required for each bike and students must use the bike racks to securely stow their property. 

Consideration for other pedestrians is expected when students are on school property. Therefore, students must walk on the sidewalks and may not use/ride equipment such as, heelies (shoes with wheels in the heels), rollerblades, skateboards, scooters and bicycles on school property.

The school is not responsible for the security of such equipment on our playground. In the spirit of encouraging active living and reducing car rides to school, we are happy to accommodate these ways of getting to school.
