Along with fire drills, our students are involved in 2 practice lockdown drills. The drill is introduced in simple age-appropriate terms as one more way of fostering a safe school community.  They are for practice, just like fire drills. The first practice lockdown took place for the students back in October.  This is a drill that is announced.  The second drill took place today, May 12 which was unannounced to staff and students. The Lockdown practice went very well, and our School Resource Officer, Cst. Le was very impressed with how the students carried out the practice today.The lockdown is a proven police and emergency response to protect students and staff from harm by creating safe places in a hurry.
