Dear Parents and Caregivers,

I would like to take this opportunity to Thank You for your support during our evacuation yesterday.  Today I spent time with each homeroom answering questions students had about the day and also reminded students that they DO know how to conduct themselves during our drills.  We can’t predict all scenarios; however, we are well practised in fire drills, evacuation, and lock downs.  Yesterday our students and staff conducted themselves in a very orderly manner and our school was evacuated swiftly.  Today staff reviewed the events of yesterday and we also had an RCMP officer on site to field any further questions.  Perhaps tonight you could have a conversation with your child regarding the evacuation and the Public School Branch website has posted ” Tips for Families and Educators, Helping Children Cope with Threats”

The site is http://www.gov.pe.ca/edu/psb/2016/09/21/tips-for-families-and-educators/

One thing that we have learned from yesterday, is the importance of having accurate contact information.  If you were unsure that we may not  have the correct contact information, call us 902-652-8970.

Thank you for your support, and if you have any questions or concerns please call me.

Mrs. MacKenzie

Lock Down Drills

Lockdown Drills

It has become a necessity for all public places to have a Lockdown Procedure in place.  Our school also has a Lockdown plan and our students have a practice drill during October and will have a second one in February.  All students should be aware of where to go in case of a lockdown, and that space is called a SAFE ZONE.  As well, all staff have been made aware of our school’s plan and have been involved in the drill.  Usually, a lockdown drill takes approximately 10-15 minutes and during that time it is necessary for all students to remain silent, so please take a moment to review this with your child tonight during homework.  If you have any questions or concerns regarding our Lockdown plan or the ELSB’s policy, please do not hesitate to call or drop by my office.

Thank you, Mrs MacKenzie
