Posted on Thursday, November 02, 2017

There are three types of emergency procedures:

  • Lockdown– potentially violent situation at the school
  • Hold and Secure– safety situation in the neighbourhood external to the school
  • Shelter in Place– a potentially environmental hazard outside the school

If it were a real lockdown, the following measures would be in place

  • HWDSB will post safety updates on the website hwdsb.on.ca
  • Synervoice messages will be sent to the parent/guardian contact phone number provided by the school
  • Corporate Communications will be in contact with local media outlets
  • Current information will be provided on the Secure Schools HOTLINE (905) 521-2535
