Parents and Guardians,
The Waterloo Regional Police and our School Staff Team initiated Hold and Secure Safety Measures today during the start of our Lunch Hour. The driver of a stolen vehicle tried to hide in our parking lot while being pursued by another civilian who knew the vehicle had been stolen. The driver of the stolen vehicle hit a number of cars in our staff parking lot as he tried to maneuver the car to leave our school property. Police were a great support and had an officer at the school to assist. As well, we have been updated that a continuing investigation to catch the perpetrator is underway. The Hold and Secure lasted for a period of 15 minutes and we are proud of our students and staff in that just as we have practiced all of the drills that schools conduct to be safe, everyone knew how to respond and did so in an efficient and timely manner.
