School Access

All visitors to the school are expected to enter through the front doors and sign in with the main office. 

  • For access, please ring the doorbell to the RIGHT as you face the front door. A staff member will ask how they can help you before visitors are “buzzed in” and then are asked to wait at the front door until a staff member greets you.
  • Please wait to hear the “click” of the lock opening. Once in the school, wait at the door. Our office staff will be happy to help with your questions and direct you to the appropriate location if you are in school to attend a meeting.

Visitors & Volunteers 

At Valley View School, we welcome every opportunity to connect with parents / guardians including the casual meet and greet moments that take place when you drop-off and pick-up your children. We encourage parents to establish routines and meeting spots for after school pick up times. Please do not go beyond the front foyer to a classroom, at any time.

Playground Supervision

Teachers begin playground supervision each morning at 7:45 AM, fifteen minutes prior to school starting. Students should arrive at school after these times and before the entry bell rings. Students are expected to remain outside during these times and also during the lunch recess. Outdoor activities will be cancelled only if it is extremely wet or cold. Please dress for the weather.  There is no school-sponsored supervision on the playgrounds after school.

During the lunch hour, teachers supervise children who stay for lunch on the playground during their recess times. 

Breakfast Program

Students needing breakfast can access it between 7:45 AM and 8:00 AM in the front foyer.

​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.
