Security

School Access and Sign-In

The main front door of the school, by the main office, is open:

Monday - Thursday:  8:00 AM - 4:00 PM
Friday:  8:00 AM - 3:30 PM

All other doors remain locked during the day so we can monitor who enters our building. 

Anyone visiting the school, including parents/guardians, is required to check-in and sign-in at the main office. Parents/guardians wishing to volunteer or visit their child's classroom should make arrangements in advance with the teacher. 

Supervision & Safe Meeting Places

Supervision is provided in the area behind the school between 8:10 – 8:25 AM and 12:30 – 12:40 PM. Please do not drop-off children prior to 8:10 AM, as there will be no supervision. There is no after school supervision. Please set up a safe place to meet your children after school. Please contact the school if you are running late, before dismissal time, to help ensure their safety.

Dropping-Off Items

If parents/guardians want to drop a lunch or book to their child during the school day, we will call the child to the office or simply deliver it to the classroom at an appropriate time to best respect instructional time for students. 

Court Orders & Documentation

If you have legal custody of your child, please make sure that the school has the appropriate and most up to date documentation on file. The purpose is so the school can clearly identify who has legal custody of a child and what parameters or boundaries are in place for the school to be aware of, respect and follow. We are neutral in all custody affairs and the safety of students always comes first

Fire Drills

CBE and Occupational Health regulations require that schools have a minimum of 6 fire drills each school year. The drills must occur at different times and in all types of weather. It is important that your child wear shoes at all times as we are required to exit the building immediately. The goal is to be ready to respond to any situation and to help build a feeling of safety and security with our practice and preparation.

​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.

RT @Indigenous_cbe: Today is fall equinox - a time when daylight & nighttime share the sky equally. Today is also Treaty 7 Day - the 144th anniversary of the signing of Treaty 7. The 🌞 & 🌙s equality today teaches us how to honour the treaty...by walking together in equal partnership. #welcomeoko https://t.co/7nUdmGVAVL
