Hold and Secure today
This letter is to inform you that Helen Detwiler Elementary School entered a Hold and Secure response today.
Hold and Secure requires the building to be secured and all persons to remain in the school due to an ongoing, non-school related situation outside. The issue today involved a police investigation. Police directed our school to enter a Hold and Secure.
You can learn more about the Secure Schools Policy Directive on the HWDSB website at http://www.hwdsb.on.ca/elementary/supports/safe-schools/secure-schools/
We want you to know that student safety is of the utmost importance at Helen Detwiler. If you have any questions, please contact our school at 905-574-2662.
We thank all parents, guardians and students for their understanding.
