RE: Lockdown Drill Practice
Dear Parents and Guardians,

I hope this letter finds you well. I am reaching out to inform you that Charlie Lake Elementary is scheduled to conduct a lockdown drill on:

Thursday, November 23rd, at 11:00 AM.

This initiative is part of the Ministry of Education’s Safe Schools program, aiming to standardize lockdown procedures across the province. Our district, in collaboration with the RCMP, has developed a comprehensive plan for these drills, ensuring a coordinated and effective approach.

We understand that such drills might be a source of concern for some students and parents. Please be assured that we are dedicated to making this a learning experience for our students. In preparation, we will be engaging in thoughtful discussions with the students to address any anxieties and explain the importance of these drills.

Your child’s safety is our utmost priority, and these practices are essential in ensuring we are prepared for any emergency. If you have any questions, concerns, or require further clarification, please feel free to reach out to us at 250-785-2025.

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation in this vital matter.

Warm regards,

Glen Longley
