School Access

We need to be vigilant in our efforts to ensure the safety of all students in our building. Access to the school during the school day is through the main front doors only. All guests to the school, including parent volunteers, are expected to sign-in at the office. Wearing visitor and volunteer name tags is critical. Visitors and volunteers not wearing visible identification will be asked to return to the main office to clarify that they are in the building on school business and to get a name tag.

Security, Supervision, and Safety

The CBE has important security policies that schools must follow. For the safety of the students and staff at Rosemont, all doors are locked. Please enter and exit the building through the front doors after ringing the intercom. Supervision begins 15 minutes before the entry bell, in the morning and at lunch. Students arriving by bus are met and dismissed by a designated supervisor. Students should not arrive at school before supervisors are on duty. When students arrive at school, they can play in the playground until the bell rings. When the bell rings, students enter the school through their designated doors and are met by their teachers. Students are expected to remove their outdoor shoes and take their personal belongings to class. Lunchroom staff provide supervision for those accessing noon supervision service. There is no supervision for students playing on school grounds after 3:50 PM.

CBE Administrative Regulations require that principal approval is obtained before any pets or other animals are brought on to school property. Posted city bylaw signs prohibit dogs on the playground.

Student Searches

Articles such as knives, bean shooters, cap pistols, toy guns, water pistols, hard balls, baseball bats, etc. should not be brought to school. When necessary, teachers must be able to quickly intervene, search students, and seize articles or items that interfere with the safety and maintenance of a learning environment. Teachers and administrators must have reasonable grounds to believe there has been a breach of school regulations or discipline. Student searches cannot be at the expense of students’ basic rights. Items confiscated will be returned to the student, parent, or appropriate person at a mutually agreeable time. (Administrative Regulation 6014 - Student Searches).

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.
