News Release: Safe and Caring Schools - Emergency Preparedness

(Fort McMurray, AB, November 3, 2020) 

This morning shortly before the start of the school day, RCMP informed Dr Clark and Composite (as well as Father Turcott and Keyano) to enact a "Lockdown" protocol.  This changed to a "Hold in Secure" as the situation unfolded. Some of our school busses had not yet arrived at school. These busses were diverted to Beacon Hill School. 

RCMP gave us this direction as there was police activity in our area of downtown, and safety is always our first priority. 

Our staff and students responded appropriately and quickly. All students and staff were safe the entire time. 

RCMP gave us the all-clear before 9:30 am and we have continued our normal school day.
