Our Health & Safety Committee and CPTED has identified a safety concern with the open fence on the North side of the school grounds behind the portables. This open area leaves unsupervised access to the area utilized by the primary students. The portables create a visual obstruction to the area which leads directly to the parking area.
Solution: Install a locked gate/closed fence until the portables are removed
Reference: CPTED : Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design recommendations to close the fence
