Visitors and Volunteers

We require all visitors and volunteers to check-in at the school office. Visitors and volunteers will wear guest tags if they will be walking through the hallways to their child’s classroom. It is important that we can identify all persons in the building. Parents should designate a spot outside where children meet up with them and their siblings. If you are unable to find your child in the area where you agreed to meet, please come to the office and we can page the student to find out if they are in the school.

Check In / Check Out

In order to ensure we know which children are here at any given time, we have check in/check out procedures. All late students report to the office and will be given a late slip to give to their teacher. Office staff will change the absence to “late”. We also ask that when children are leaving the school early, the person collecting them comes to the office to pick the student up and signs the student out in the appropriate binder in the office. Students may not leave the school during the school day without permission from a parent/guardian and an adult staff member.

​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.

Students at Lester B. Pearson High School and many other schools took part in @Moose_Hide Campaign on May 12. The nationwide event raises awareness for the #MMIWG and violence against women and children. Read more on our website: https://t.co/M73qVEWEOi #WeAreCBE https://t.co/Iwolb09uVS

RT @SASCBE: Our Grade 3/4s had a hands on experience building birds houses after learning about the importance of birds in Calgary. Birds are often seen as spiritual messengers who bridge the natural and spirit world in Indigenous cultures. @DClovis https://t.co/7DoX3d45Ca

RT @CJMCBE: Our Grade 5 students explored Weaselhead Flats today. We learned so much about wetlands, plants, and animals. We studied aquatic invertebrates and saw so many different birds. Thank you to our guide and to our parent volunteers 😃 #WeAreCBE https://t.co/H26VYcj1EY
