Today I was notified by a parent from Silver Creek that a suspicious vehicle has been seen driving around a bus stop for our school. RCMP have since been notified.
We have spoken to our students today about being safe on our way to and from school. I would invite you to have a more candid conversation with your child(ren) about never accepting rides from strangers, what to do if a stranger attempts to talk to them, etc.
We are committed to student safety and as a result we will ensure sufficient supervision takes place during recess and bus pick up and drop offs. The SD83 Transportation Department has been made aware of the situation and bus drivers have also been notified.
Please feel free to reach out to me (250 832-8282) if you have any specific concerns about this incident.
