Good morning Queen E Parents and Guardians;
We had a very successful lockdown drill this morning.  Thank you for your support by speaking with your child in preparation for this very important drill.
Today, Queen Elizabeth School received an anonymous threat.
We followed our safety procedures to ensure the safety of our students and staff.  The threat was assessed and deemed a low risk in collaboration with the RCMP, and District Officials. 
I want to ensure you that we take all issues that may affect school safety seriously and are committed to ensuring a positive and safe working and learning environment for our students and staff.  We will continue to inform you if there are developments that relate to your child’s safety.
Thank you for your continued support.
