Dear Parent/Caregiver:

As we prepare to welcome students back to the classroom after this Labour Day weekend, we do it with heavy hearts. All of Saskatchewan is mourning the loss of the lives that were taken this past weekend during unthinkable and vicious attacks. Our thoughts and prayers go to those families, to those who were injured and to their families and the communities in which they live.

We know you may be talking to your children about the events of the past weekend, and we will have staff available to speak to any students who need support in processing the news of these events.

With one suspect still at large, we will be hyper vigilant in maintaining the safety of students, teachers and school staff.

All schools will be in Hold & Secure until further notice. This means the exterior doors of the building will be locked throughout the school day, recess and breaks will be indoors, and guests will not be able to enter the building. Classes will continue within the school.

We will continue to be in close contact with the Ministry of Education and local authorities about the situation, and we will inform you if the situation changes within our schools.

Again, thank you for your continued partnership with us, as we work to keep our school community safe and aware of this evolving situation.

​​Duane Hauk,
Director of Education
