Security

Volunteers / Visitors

All volunteers and visitors must check-in at the office.

Student Safety

We do our utmost to ensure that children are in a safe environment while at school. We also want parents to feel that they are welcome to be in the building to pick children up, to speak to a teacher, or to volunteer. We hope the following guidelines will help in this regard: 

  1. Outside doors are locked. You may access the building by using the silver doorbell at the front door of the school. Please come directly to the office.
  2. Parents and older siblings may wait outside the student’s dismissal doors when picking up children or at an agreed upon spot outdoors. There is not enough space for students to wait inside the front doors.
  3. All volunteers must sign in and wear a name tag while in the building. All volunteers must complete a registration form and a “Consent to Search and Disclosure of Personal Information (Agency)” form for security clearance.
  4. Children who need to be picked up during school hours will be called to the office once a parent has checked in. If you are requesting that your child walk home during school hours, please send a note to the teacher with the important details and call the school once the child has arrived home safely.

Use of the School Telephone

Demands on the use of the school phone are high. Students may use the phone with their teacher’s permission for any “important” reason. They may NOT use the phone to inform parents or friends of after school plans. We expect students to go home after school before beginning their social activities. The phone is ALWAYS available for an emergency. 

We also request that parents avoid leaving messages for children via the school secretary unless no other possibilities exist. It disrupts classes when messages must be passed on to individual children.

​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.
