Good evening,

I hope you've managed to find some time to rest this weekend in between digging out from the snow.

We will be having a "Lockdown" drill sometime this week.  This is a mandated drill in all schools across Ontario.  From time to time, police activity and/or incidents in and around schools and their communities may result in a school being put into “Lockdown”. 

A Lockdown minimizes access and visibility in an effort to shelter students, staff and visitors in secure locations.  All students are to be kept in classrooms or other designated locations and inner doors are also locked where possible. Entry to, and exit from, the building is restricted to emergency services personnel only.

During a Lockdown, lights are turned off in the classroom/office, curtains/blinds are closed where possible, cell phone use is restricted and all people inside the building should remain quiet. During a Lockdown, school phones and the front door buzzer will not be answered as the administration is tending to the ongoing situation.  We ask for your patience should you be visiting the school during this drill.  Teachers will help prepare the students with age-appropriate conversations.  Lockdown drills typically last 10-15 minutes. 

Let me know if you have any questions.
Mrs. Smith
