Security

We take safety and security seriously. It is important that we maintain a safe and caring community so that learning can take place.

Appointments

Parents wishing to meet with school administrators or teachers must phone the school or email to make an appointment. Please visit our website for teacher and administrator email addresses.

Student Entrances & Exits

Students are welcome to enter the building at 9:00 AM. Students who are coming early for study purposes, team practices, etc. should proceed directly to the appropriate area when the teacher invites them to do so.

Students must be under the direct supervision of the teacher involved in that activity.

At the end of the school day, unless under the direct supervision of a teacher, students are expected to promptly leave the building.

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 and allows staff and students to know you have signed-in with the office staff by wearing your volunteer/visitor badge.

In order to ensure school security, all exterior doors will be locked after school commences each day. Anyone who is not a student or school staff member is required to sign-in.

Student Searches

In the event that school safety and security is a concern administration has the right to complete searches of student lockers, student property or personal belongings at any time.

Fire Drill Evacuation Procedures

Calgary Board of Education policy 3021 requires that schools have 6 regular evacuation drills so that everyone will have practice in clearing school buildings quickly and efficiently.

At the sound of the alarm, everyone is to proceed quickly and quietly from wherever they are in the school to our designated “muster” point on the east side of the building. Students are to stay with their class in alphabetical order throughout the entire procedure. Attendance will be taken when the class is out of the school. Students, who are away from their class when the alarm rings should exit the school through the closest exit and join their class outside. If evacuation occurs during lunch/class change proceed to the location of your homeroom area for check-in.

Everyone is to remain outside until 3 short bells are heard or instructions are given to return to the building.

If return to the school is not possible, students are to follow directions of school administration for further details.

​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.
