Dear Clarkson families,
I’m writing to inform you about an incident that took place at our school today. At approximately 10:45 a.m., there was an altercation between two students that involved a weapon. One student was taken to a local hospital for treatment of non-life threatening injuries. Police were called and are investigating.
The families of the students involved have been contacted and no other students were impacted by the incident. As the students involved are youth, this is all the information I am able to share at this time.
We take these situations very seriously and wanted to make sure you had this information. The safety of our students and staff is our top priority. The school will be conducting its own investigation once the police investigation is complete. Through its Safe Schools Policy, the Peel District School Board is committed to providing and maintaining safe, inclusive and accepting environments conducive to learning and working for all. We will do everything we can to ensure an incident like this does not happen again.
