Dear families,

Please be advised that Clemens Mill Public School is currently in a hold and secure at the request of Waterloo Region Police Service who are dealing with an incident outside of the school.

Please be assured that everyone in the school is safe and we’re able to carry on with our day as normal. However, until the police give us the all clear, we will not be able to release students from the building.

Our board is updating social media channels, so please keep your eyes peeled to @wrdsb on Twitter and on Facebook.

Thank you for your patience and understanding as we await further information from the police.
