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

All doors, except the front doors, will be locked during school hours. All visitors are required to sign in at the office upon arrival.

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. 

Supervision

Supervision is provided in the morning, during health break and at lunch. Lunchroom staff provides supervision for those students in Grades 4 - 6 who access noon hour supervision services. Supervising staff are also in place in the Gathering Area for those students in Grades 7 - 9 who remain at the school during the lunch hour. All students are required to exit the building after school unless in a school sponsored activity, sport, club, etc. There is no supervision after school and parents are responsible to supervise their children if they stay at the playground or school grounds. 

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.

​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.
