Lockdown Drill

Well done on the lockdown practice. Your response was quick and students were very quiet. Please note that we have asked to keep the to doors storage areas and unused classroom spaces shut and locked. Please let Rick or me know if you require keys as we transition to this. This allows police to clear the building for safety more quickly. Also, the Fire Marshall asked us to keep doors closed as much as possible to avoid smoke contamination in case of fire.

Remembrance Day

Thank you for preparing your students for a touching Remembrance Day Assembly. It was wonderful to have our students so involved.

Bully Awareness Week

Grade 6/7 students have planned activities - looking forward to seeing what they have for us! They will visit each class on Wed or Thurs for about 15 minutes. Please sign up in staff room.
