School Access/Entry

The construction around our school continues to be a bit of an inconvenience, but we are doing a good job of accommodating in this temporary time. A reminder to all parents/guardians to please walk around the school to access the school office. For student safety, we would like to ensure the only adults ON the school yard are staff wearing yellow supervision vests.

Thank you.

Stranger In School Area

Dear Parents / Guardians:

 

As you may be aware from a local media report, on Monday morning two of our students were approached by a man on Neilson Avenue who offered to carry their backpacks for them. The students did not know the individual and continued safely to school.

 

The incident has been reported to Waterloo Regional Police and they are investigating.

 

The safety and well-being of our students is our top priority and our school staff will be reinforcing street safety messages with their classes to ensure all students understand how to appropriately interact with strangers. It would be most helpful if you were able to emphasize the importance of street safety with your children as well.

 

As always, your support of our school is most appreciated.

 

If you have any questions please feel free to contact me directly.
