Curriculum Night - Semester 2
The safety and security of our students and staff are a top
priority for Prince Andrew High School and the Halifax Regional School
Board. We have been implementing a number of measures as part of a
comprehensive plan aimed at ensuring our school remains a safe place for our
students to learn.
One of the procedures our school will be employing is an
isolation drill. During an isolation drill, classroom doors are secured and
the students remain inside the room until instructed by the teacher to
resume their activities. All exterior doors are locked and no one is
permitted to enter or leave the building.
Students are isolated within the school when circumstances
make it safer to stay in the classroom rather than evacuate. Just as we
prepare our students to properly respond to a fire drill, they also need to
be aware of the proper response during an isolation drill. These drills
should be treated with the same level of importance as fire drills.
Please be assured that staff at our school will spend time
discussing the importance of this procedure with students prior to running a
drill. We will also take time after the drill to remind them that it was
only a practice and there was no danger.
Please take the time to speak with your son/daughter about
this procedure and reinforce its importance. We practice these drills to
ensure our school remains a safe place for teaching and learning.
MIDDAY SCHOOL CANCELLATION
STUDENT INFORMATION FORM
There may be circumstances when school is
cancelled during the day due to severe weather, power outages or where there
is a situation deemed unsafe for our students to be present.
This decision will be communicated to all
schools as close to 11:00 a.m. as possible.
Prince Andrew High School is part of the Prince
Andrew Family of Schools. Usually, weather related cancellations will
be announced on the radio according to “Family of Schools’, not the
individual school. Therefore, if you hear announced that the Prince
Andrew Family of School is closed then Prince Andrew High School is closed.
The Halifax Regional School
Board takes great care when making the decision to alter the normal
operations of schools in the event of severe or inclement weather.
Decisions on school closures and/or bus cancellations are posted on the
board’s website at
www.hrsb.ns.ca, on Twitter at
www.twitter.com/HRSB_Official, recorded on 464-INFO (4636) and
communicated to all local radios stations. You can also receive notice
of school and bus cancellations by e-mail or text message by following the
link on the front page (left side) of the HRSB website. If you
interested in learning more on how decisions regarding closures and
cancellations are made, visit

Speed Limit Change in School Zones
To help make school
zones safer, the speed limit has been reduced to 30 km/h in areas where the
approaching limit is 50 km/h, when children are present. This change is
effective September 1, 2012. If the speed limit in an area approaching a
school zone is higher than 50 km/h, the school zone speed limit will remain
50 km/h. Signage in the areas affected have not all been updated as of yet.
