Message to Hillcrest Public School parents/guardians

March 09, 2020

​Dear Parents/Guardians,

This letter is to notify you of an incident that occurred outside the building on Monday, March 9, 2020.

At approximately 11:05 a.m., there was an incident involving police outside the school in the local area. There was no concern for students' safety inside the school during this time; however, as a precautionary measure, students were secured inside the building until the situation was resolved.

School staff followed the LKDSB's Hold-and-Secure procedure, as per our Safe Schools protocols. The Hold-and-Secure remained in place until approximately 11:20 a.m., when Lambton OPP confirmed it was safe to exit the building.

A Hold and Secure is used when an ongoing situation, unrelated to the school, occurs nearby. During a Hold and Secure, all exterior doors are locked and monitored, and no one is permitted to exit or enter the building.

Student and staff safety is a top priority for the Lambton Kent District School Board and we appreciated everyone's cooperation during this time.

Should you have any questions or concerns you are encouraged to contact the school.
