Hey Families,
There was a Hold and Secure at our school on Friday October 19th due to a police issue in the neighborhood.  It occured right before dismissal.  Students were held for 30 minutes in the school.  The Hold and Secure was held and ended on recommendation from the RCMP.  If you have any questions, please check in with me at the school, or give me a call.
