The Grizzly Gazette Nov 14 – 18

Dear Parents and Families,

As the weather gets colder, please help your child dress for the weather. Just a reminder that we make every effort to allow the students to get some fresh air during recess and lunch. Inside days will only happen during extreme weather. Parents should consider bringing a change of clothes with younger students.

 

A reminder that our first PAC Hot Lunch is on the 25th. Instructions are below.

HOLD AND SECURE DRILL

We are planning to practice our Hold and Secure emergency procedure on Nov. 16th. Hold and Secure is a procedure which allows the school to continue with the school day but forbids outside activity and unnecessary room-to-room transit. A Hold and Secure is most commonly used when there is a security concern in the neighbourhood close to the school, and there is no immediate danger. Examples of when a Hold and  Secure is initiated could be when there is an animal, like a bear spotted in the area near the school or when there is a police incident in the neighbourhood. During the procedure, no unauthorized personnel are to enter the building.

We realize that practicing fire drills, earthquake drills and Hold and Secure drills has the potential to cause some anxiety among some students. The teachers and staff will be working hard to explain to our students that there is nothing to worry about during such drills and that it is important for schools to practice what to do in case of an emergency. Please help us ease these potential anxieties by having discussions with your children at home.

Please note that for the purposes of this drill, there is no pick-up necessary. Parents should also know that it is very common for the Delta Police to be present during emergency drills. Please do not be alarmed if you see police vehicles at the school on Nov 16th. If you have any questions about the Hold and Secure Drill, please feel free to contact the school.
