Please see notes below:

From the Grade 1s: 


From the school:

Dear Parent(s) and Guardian(s), 

This email is to inform you that we experienced an unexpected fire alarm this morning in the building. SJA staff did an amazing job evacuating the students safely and in a timely fashion from the building. Students were outside for ten minutes waiting in line while we followed proper protocol to ensure every child was accounted for. At this time, we then made our way over to Meadowvale rinks to have shelter from the cold. Once the fire department gave the go ahead we returned back to the building. There is no need for alarm or concern the building and students are safe and secure.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me, Mrs. Smith at bsmith@stjudesacademy.com or Mrs. Hocevar at hhocevar@stjudesacademy.com.
