This morning, at approximately 10:00 am, the fire alarm sounded at our school. Toronto Fire Services was immediately contacted. The fire alarm was due to a small fire in the cafeteria kitchen on the first floor.
Students and staff remained outside the school until 10:35 am at which time we were advised by the Fire Department that students and staff could safely enter the building.
As you know, the safety of our students is a top priority at Wexford Collegiate School for the Arts and we followed appropriate TDSB policies to ensure the safety and well-being of our students.
The response and cooperation from our students and teachers was exceptional and I want to commend them for their actions. Staff acted calmly and ensured that everyone was accounted for.
I also want to thank Toronto Fire Services for their assistance.
I f you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me at the school.
