The Board has issued a letter from Superintendent Jodie Baker as a “general notice to parents/guardians to ensure safe schools in our district”:
The Avon Maitland District School Board and the Huron-Perth Catholic District School Board along with our Community Partners are committed to making our schools safe for students, staff, school visitors, and community members. Part of this commitment is responding quickly and effectively to student behaviours that pose a potential risk to students, staff, and members of the community. Early intervention will help reduce school violence and maintain a high level of safety. As such, the school boards have established a Violence Threat Risk Assessment Protocol in partnership with a number of community agencies.
