Visitors & Volunteers

All visitors & volunteers to CBE schools have to sign in at the office and wear a visitor/volunteer badge while in the school. If you wish to see your child, or need to drop something off for them or their classroom, please check in at the office and the staff will call your child down to the office.

Student Sign-out

The parent/guardian is responsible for signing out their student in the school office. Students cannot be signed out by anyone who is not on the student’s Emergency Contact List and even then we must have a parent/guardian’s consent.

Emergency School Closure

In the event of an emergency school closure, parents/guardians will be notified through the school telephone fan-out and arrangements made for students to return home. If the need arises to vacate the school, the students and staff will move to a safe predetermined off-site location. When safe to do so, and appropriate to the particular situation, parents/guardians will be contacted via the fan-out with further instructions. Students will be dismissed from this location at usual school hours.

Your Contact Information

In the case of a medical emergency or an emergency school closure it will be imperative to contact someone immediately so please keep us informed of any changes in your emergency contact information or those on your emergency contact list right away.

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 via SchoolMessenger.
