Safety Awareness Week – October 17th

October 14, 2021

Dear Parents/Guardians:

The York Catholic District School Board has a primary responsibility and goal to ensure a safe learning environment for all of our students and staff in our school community.

As part of our safety initiative , along with all other schools in the York Catholic District School Board, will be practising a variety of safety procedures with students and staff.  All of our drills and practice procedures will align with current advice from both York Public Health and our First Responders (Fire and Police).

The week of October 17th to October 23rd has been designated as “Safety Awareness Week”.  During this week, we will be rehearsing a variety of emergency school procedures to acquaint students and staff with the precautionary steps to take in the event of such things as a warning of severe weather, an intruder or a fire evacuation.  In addition, throughout the year we will hold practice drills to acquaint students with various emergency protocols.  Teachers will review these procedures with students in class prior to our practice drills.

If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact the school.  Thank you for your support.

Yours in Catholic Education,

Joeanne Bortolussi

Acting Principal
