Lockdown Drill #2

May 18th, 2016 by Jerelyn Orcutt No comments »

On Wednesday, May 25th we will be having our second lockdown drill for this year.  This one will take place during the common lunch.

We have spoken with the RCMP and district safe schools coordinator regarding the protocols of a lockdown during unstructured time.  This week we will meet with all students and discuss where they should go and what should they do during the lockdown drill at lunch.  TAG teachers will review this information with their students.

If you have any questions or concerns about this lockdown drill, please contact the school.
