Before and After School Care
Calgary AfterSchool (CAS) is a city-wide framework of after school programming opportunities for all children and youth ages 6 – 16 years, primarily between the weekday hours of 3 – 6 PM, throughout the school year. To learn more about CAS, read our program document under Resources.
Students are to arrive at school no more than 15 minutes before the commencement of classes as supervision is not provided before that time. Supervision by K – 6 teachers starts at 8:00 AM. Kindergarten students require their parent/caregiver to greet the kindergarten teacher at their assigned door at the beginning and the end of each day. Kindergarten students who take the bus are greeted and supervised by teachers at the beginning of their school day and they are escorted directly to the bus at dismissal. At lunch time, supervision is provided for grades 1– 6 students by lunchroom supervisors.
There is no supervision on the school grounds after the school dismissal bell at 2:43 PM. CBE busing students are supervised by staff while they board their assigned bus. For reasons of safety, we encourage students to proceed directly to their bus or homes (or their child care provider) after school. Students who do not take the bus and who display inappropriate behaviour on the playground after school hours will be directed to leave school property.
If it is necessary to change after-school routines, we encourage families to make plans before the school day starts. Students are requested not to make after school plans with their friends during or after the school day.
If a friend of your child(ren) should come to your home unexpectedly after school, it is advisable to phone the child’s parents to ensure that they know where their child is and that it meets with their (and your) approval. For safety reasons, students may not leave the school grounds at any time during school hours without parents previously notifying the
school and the student receiving permission from the office.
