Hold and Secure response

April 22, 2022

Dear families,

This communication is to inform you that Bernie Custis went into a Hold and Secure response today that escalated into a Lockdown response.

The issue today involved a police response to a report of a student with a stun gun.

As a precaution, police placed our school into Hold and Secure, which is used when an ongoing situation outside and not related to the school requires that students and staff remain in the school.

Our school announced and initiated a Lockdown response when the student entered the school with the weapon. One student was taken into police custody.

We thank our students and staff for their co-operation during today’s response. You can learn more about HWDSB’s secure schools responses at hwdsb.info/secureschools

We want you to know that we consider student safety of the utmost importance. If you have any questions, please contact our school at 905-296-2504.

We thank all families and students for their understanding.


Sonya Sykes
