We live in an area in which wild animals are sometimes sighted. If you happen to see a wild animal close to the school, it is helpful for the school to be aware to ensure staff are on extra alert. We have a safety plan in place if ever a wild animal is sighted near the school while students are at school. It is also important to contact conservation so that sightings can be documented in our area. Please click here find some information from BC Conversation on how to stay safe around wildlife. Please review pertinent pieces to help your child stay safe on their way to school and home from school. Click here to access additional information from wildsafebc.com.
