Rehearsal of Bomb Threat Procedure Wednesday, December 19, 2018

​Peel schools provide a safe environment for students and staff to learn and work. The board has many procedures to ensure safety including regular fire drills, evacuation plans, criminal record checks for new staff and volunteers and lockdown drills.  In accordance with the Ministry of Education, the Peel board worked with Peel Regional Police, Ontario Provincial Police and school boards in the Peel region to develop protocols for critical situations including bomb threats, lockdowns, hold and secure and shelter in place in order to help keep schools safe during a potentially serious or violent incident.

Peel board's new bomb threat procedure prepares all Peel schools and worksites in the event of a bomb threat or suspicious device/substance. Every school will review the key points of the bomb threat process with students and will rehearse the drill once per year to ensure students and staff know what to do if we have to initiate a bomb threat procedure. Please be advised that we will be holding a rehearsal December 19, 2018.

Students are requested to turn off their cell phones during these emergency procedures. Safety is our number one priority and police have advised that cell phone usage can cause more safety risks and danger than benefits. Parents are also requested NOT to call the school or your child's cell phone during emergency procedures. Please monitor your child's school website for updates. In some cases, police will designate a Parent Information Site for you to attend and get up-to-date, accurate information.

In the unlikely circumstance of an actual event, police ask that parents do not go to the school unless requested to do so. For safety reasons, you will not be allowed to enter the school premises.
