To our Cameron Heights CI students and families,
This morning, our staff were made aware of graffiti found on school property that was threatening in nature. The message indicated an act of violence on Thursday at 11:30 a.m. This threat was immediately reported to the Waterloo Regional Police Service who are currently investigating to determine the author of the message. There was no evidence found to support that this threat is credible.
We want to echo the statements from our board that it is unacceptable to make threats, written or verbal, towards anyone. No matter the intention, we take any intimidation or threat of violence seriously and the authors of these threats need to understand that they will be held accountable.
As we identify the individuals responsible for this threatening remark, they are subject to consequences and progressive discipline that may result in:
- arrest and criminal charges and;
- suspension or expulsion from school
As we work closely with our partners at WRPS, we ask for the ongoing assistance of our students to report any information you may have of this incident. You can confidentially report things that concern you to any teacher, administrator or local police. You can also contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 without fearing that you will be identified.
We want to thank our partners at WRPS for helping to keep our schools safe places to learn. We will always take whatever precaution is necessary to ensure the safety of our students and staff. Please feel free to call the CHCI Administration at 519-578-8330 with any questions or concerns.
Ray Teed, Principal
