Security

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

School Access

Entry/Exit to the school is as follows:

  • Kindergarten students - East doors facing the parking lot
  • Grades 6 – 9 Southwest door
  • Grades 1,2,3 and 4 – Southeast door
  • Grade 5 – Front door

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.

Supervision

Playground Supervision: Teacher supervision is provided on the playground during recess. Students using the playground after school are assumed to have prior parental permission and personal adult supervision and are therefore responsible for their own safety. We ask parents to bring their own playing toys for after school playground play. The school purchases playground toys every year for students to use during recess and noon hour play time. These toys are not to be used after school hours as we find that when they are taken outside they often do not return to the school.

Outside Noon Hour Supervision: is provided by the lunch room program staff for those students participating in the lunch room program. Students not in the lunch room program must not return to the playground prior to 1:10 pm.

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 Drills

A total of 6 fire drills are held during the school year. Many drills are scheduled without warning; therefore students should wear footwear at all times.  It is recommended that students dress in layers so that they can put on a hoodie/sweater should a fire drill or a fire emergency occur.

​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.

What’s the best way to know how something works? … take it apart and look inside. Our 8s had the chance to dissect sheep and horse eyes to see how each part work together. #yycbe #wearecbe #edchat #sciencechat https://t.co/2tvI7TChoZ

Today our 9s explored indigenous ways of knowing in geometry. We used Math in a Cultural Context to learn how we can make circles using only our knuckle and a pair of scissors. #yycbe #wearecbe #mathchat #edchat @UsihChristopher RT #IndigenousPeoplesDay https://t.co/19sTyB6Zun https://t.co/ptbcqNNJXI

Rosedale Middle School Students in grades 6-9 are powering through their last full week of the 2021-22 year by showing School Spirit! We'll be kicking off the week by dressing like our favourite character from a show, book, history, band, or so much more on Monday! https://t.co/obI185VaSH

Our 8s were diving into the science and social issues of filtering unsanitary water. Clean and safe drinking water is something we take for granted but for almost 1 billion people around the world this isn’t the case. #yycbe #wearecbe #edchat https://t.co/lgDCakPpnf

Strong mental math skills start and end with the use games and manipulatives. Games like totality build resilience to create stronger understanding of number sense. #yyccbe #wearecbe #math #maths #edchat #mathchat https://t.co/4U6dyxUQyU
