Safe Welcome Program - Safety Before Convenience

Effective March 2014, the front door will also be locked, with a camera/speaker unit feeding to a video monitor in the main office. This is part of the Safe Welcome Program announced by the Ontario Government in December 2012 for elementary schools in Ontario.

Upon entry, we ask all visitors to report to the office for sign in.

Principals maintain ultimate authority for visitors admitted into their school, and we see the Safe Welcome Program as another component of our Safe Schools initiative.

We recognize that there will be a period of adjustment as we adapt to this change in security for our school, and we appreciate your patience during this period.

If you have any questions about the program or the system, please contact the school office. For more information, see the DDSB Safe Welcome News Item.

Thank you for supporting our continued emphasis on student safety.
