Dear Parents and Guardians
On October 18 at approximately 7:45am, two of our students were approached by a stranger as they were walking to their bus stop near the Downtown Activity Center. The stranger was driving a black SUV and asked the students if they wanted a ride. He then started to pull over in front of them. The students refused and ran to the bus stop. The man then drove off. The students told their parents and the incident was report to the RCMP.
Teachers will be discussing the incident with classes. Please help your children and the community by discussing this information, safety and the importance of not going anywhere with strangers.
If you have any questions, please call me at the school.
Please find attached our Week at a Glance for the week of Oct 15-19. A huge thank you to everyone who came out on the weekend to help with our annual fall clean-up. The school grounds look amazing. Don’t forget to get your online Hot Lunch orders completed by Sun Oct 21!
