Incident Today

You may be aware that a police incident occurred at Deep Cove School today where a previously unauthorized person entered the school. With an abundance of caution the school was placed into a lockdown at approximately 11:00 am to ensure the safety of everyone in the building. Although this was an unexpected event, students and staff did an excellent job of following procedures and at no time were any children in danger.

As per normal procedures, the school was released from lockdown by the police at approximately 11:20 am. We are debriefing with both students and staff and offering additional support as needed.

After discussing this with your child later today, if you feel additional support is necessary please contact Ms. Hardcastle directly.
