Access to the School

Exterior doors are locked during the daytime to ensure the safety of our students, staff and volunteers. Staff greet students at the doors between 8:30 and 8:40AM.  At all other times, please access the school through the front entrance. Everyone is required to check in at the office before proceeding to any other areas in the school.

Leaving During the School Day 

For the safety of our students, we have a “Sign-out Register” when a student is leaving the school premises during instructional school time. The student must be signed out in the main office by the adult who is picking them up.

If you would like to pick your child up early for an appointment, please email and let us know what time you are coming.  Please give us plenty of notice so we can try to get your child ready on time.

Releasing Children to Others 

Unless a parent has made other arrangements with the school, children are released only to legal guardians. You are asked to discuss custody or other situations with the principal. It is essential that the school has the most recent copy of any legal custody agreement.

If your child is going to be picked up by someone who is not a legal guardian, please email with the following information:

  • Your child's name and class
  • The date 
  • The name and phone number of the person who will be picking them up

We are not able to release your child without all of the above information.  Please send your email before 3:00PM so that office staff is able to let the teacher know who your child is going home with.

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.
