Message for Parents

Monday, September 17, 2018

 Dear Parents & Students,

Please be advised that a possible safety issue was identified at our school/centre this afternoon, which led the GALT & LVTC campus to go into a “Secure the Building” mode. We were informed by the police that an intruder had entered the campus grounds.

The school and centre teams, in collaboration with the Sherbrooke Police put the necessary measures as outlined in our Emergency Protocol into effect. The police were able to authorize dismissal and have confirmed that the individual left our campus and there is no longer a safety issue.

 Therefore, the school and centre will be open tomorrow morning as usual.

 Thank you for your understanding in this matter.

 Sincerely,

Peggy McCourt, Principal AGRHS
Luc Rodrigue, Centre Director LVTC
