Dartmouth High School

Message from Principal to all Parents/Guardians:

Dear Parents/Guardians,

We have many people to thank for assisting us during the lockdown today.

First and foremost, we thank our students and staff who displayed amazing poise throughout the entire event.

We thank the police who responded quickly and took all steps to ensure everyone remained safe while they conducted their investigation.

In the course of their investigation, police did take a young person into custody and an imitation weapon was found. Police do expect charges to be laid.

We thank the Halifax Regional Centre for Education for sending communication to parents/guardians on our behalf during the lockdown. The HRCE will be providing additional supports in the school tomorrow.

We thank Stock Transportation and their drivers for rerouting their buses to take our bused students home after the “all clear” was given.

And last, but definitely not least, we want to thank our parents/guardians for your patience and cooperation during a very stressful period of time.

We expect classes to resume as regularly scheduled tomorrow but if you feel your child may require additional support, please don’t hesitate to reach out to the school.

Eartha Monard
