Dear Parents, Guardians and Caregivers,
A Coyote has been reported being seen near our school. Animal Control, through the City of Hamilton, has been notified.
I wanted to share this information with you as a precaution and remind you of what to do if you encounter a coyote.
According to the City of Hamilton’s website, if you or your children encounter a coyote, please take the following steps to protect yourself:
- Stay calm if a coyote approaches you and wait until they move on.
- Shout, clap your hands together or make a loud noise to scare coyotes away.
- Tell your children to stay away from coyotes and other wildlife.
- Call Animal Services at 905-574-3433 to report injured or dead wildlife.
