On Wednesday, January 29th during the lunch hour it was reported that there was a suspicious man on the stairs leading from Southport Ave. to Windermere Ave. This was reported to the police and they are investigating this matter.
We are suggesting that students do not use these stairs unless they are travelling in a group.
Please review street proofing procedures with your child.
Always walk with a buddy to and from school;
Always tell your parents where you are;
Never accept gifts from strangers;
When help is needed, go to the nearest store or school, the home of a friend or run towards a group of people or a parent with children;
Never approach or enter a stranger’s car; adults have no acceptable reason to offer a ride or to ask children for directions or assistance;
If a car is following you, change directions and run;
Say ‘NO’ if an adult wants you to do something you know is wrong;
Know your name, address and phone number;
Know that police officers are friends and can help you;
Tell your parents or teacher whenever someone treats you in a way that makes you feel uncomfortable or unsafe. TRUST YOUR INSTINCTS.
Please be assured that our staff will continue to take any necessary steps to ensure the safety of our students and staff.
If you have any questions, please call the school at 416-393-9080
