In the event of a lockdown, the HWDSB will post a “Lockdown” message on our school website.
Please note that there are actually three types of situations that would lead to restricting entry to or exit from the school. There is a “Lockdown” in which there is a violent incident or threat of violence in the school or in relation to the school. There is also “Hold and Secure” which means that there is an ongoing situation outside the school that requires all persons to remain in the school. Finally, there is “Shelter in Place” which happens when there is an environmental or weather related situation, where it is necessary to keep all persons inside the school in order to protect them.
For more information about these situations and how the school will respond to the, please click to see more details about safe schools.
