AJS had successful Hold and Secure and Lockdown drills today.

As this was a drill, there is no action parents/guardians need to take. In the event of a hold and secure in response to an actual incident, we would provide information on any actions parents/guardians need to take to co-operatively support our emergency response procedures.

A hold and secure is used when there is a security threat or potential threat of violence outside the building. In a hold and secure, any people outside are directed back into the building and all exterior doors are locked. All interior doors remain in their normal state and routine activities generally continue inside. No one is allowed in or out of the building until the hold and secure is lifted.

As this is a drill, there is no action parents/guardians need to take. In the event of a lockdown in response to an actual incident, we would provide information on any actions parents/guardians need to take to co-operatively support our emergency response procedures.

A lockdown is used when there is an imminent security threat or potential threat of violence inside the building. In a lockdown, all students and staff immediately proceed to the nearest lockable area and all interior doors are locked. Lights are turned off, and students and staff remain quiet and hidden from sight as much as possible until the lockdown is lifted. No one is allowed in or out of the building until the lockdown is lifted.

Thank you for your co-operation in keeping students and staff safe.

HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS: STUDENT PARKING

Please do not sit in vehicles during the lunch hour or breaks, as there is not adequate supervision for students to be doing so. If you are going to your car at lunch, it is intended that you are doing so to leave school property. Students can take advantage of seating and healthy lunch options in the school cafeteria or grad hall.  There are also intramurals and clubs running during the lunch hour.

This will be monitored and enforced starting Monday Nov 26th, 2018.

Thank you for understanding.
