Lockdown Rehearsal on Wednesday

posted by Gary Levante   [ updated ]

Dear Robert Baldwin Families,


Each semester, as part of our Safety Plan, every school in the Halton District School Board conducts 3 fire drills and 2 lockdown rehearsals. These planned drills and rehearsals are important in ensuring that staff and students are aware of how to appropriately respond in the event of a real emergency. If any deficiencies or problems are noted, then changes are made to the plan.


We will be conducting a lockdown rehearsal this Wednesday January 23rd, 2019 at approximately 12:15 PM.


The lockdown rehearsal will last approximately 20 minutes. During that time, staff and students will be in ‘lockdown’ mode (classroom doors locked, lights off, students sitting on the floor).


Access to the school by visitors WILL NOT be available during the time of the lockdown rehearsal. Also, our secretaries will not be able to answer phone calls until the rehearsal is completed.


As School Principal, I will direct staff and students to resume normal school activities once the lockdown rehearsal is complete. These types of training exercises help to ensure that staff, students and police are ready to respond appropriately in the event of a real emergency.


If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me ~ Gary Levante (Principal) ~ levanteg@hdsb.ca or 905-878-8833.


Thank you for your anticipated understanding.

Treaties Recognition Week

posted Nov 6, 2018, 6:57 AM by Gary Levante   [ updated Nov 6, 2018, 6:58 AM ]

Treaties Recognition Week 2018 runs from November 4 - 10th. It is an opportunity to educate and raise awareness about treaties and the treaty relationship. All students, staff, and community, both Indigenous and non-Indigenous, benefit from learning about the histories, cultures, contributions, and perspectives First Nations, Métis, Inuit.


The Truth and Reconciliation Commission states that, “Too many Canadians still do not know the history of Aboriginal peoples’ contributions to Canada, or understand that by virtue of the historical and modern Treaties negotiated by our government, we are all Treaty people. History plays an important role in reconciliation; to build for the future, Canadians must look to, and learn from, the past.”


Let’s all take this opportunity to learn more about treaties together. It is important for everyone to understand the significance of treaties, that they are applicable today and that they ensure the rights of many First Nations people.


As part of honouring
Treaties Recognition Week in Halton DSB,  all schools are displaying the flag of the Mississaugas of the New Credit First Nation.
