2. Do not talk to strangers.
3. Inform your parents and the school if a stranger approaches you.
4. Remember, adults do not ask for directions from children.
5. Always let your parents know if there has been a change in your plans.
6. Avoid taking short cuts through fields and parks.
7. Never walk alone, especially at night.
8. Be aware of your surroundings when wearing earphones.
9. It is okay for children not to speak to adults who they do not know.

Equity and Inclusive Education
We believe that it is important that our school libraries and classroom resources reflect inclusivity and serve to foster sensitivity towards individuals and groups that have traditionally been and/or are currently being marginalized within the broader society. These resources serve to identify and remove barriers that may exist for various groups and families. They may touch on topics of ethnicity, disability, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, age, family status and marital status. They are intended to help students to acquire the knowledge and skills that enable them to challenge unjust practices, and to build positive human relationships as members of a global community.
Our goal is to provide students with opportunities to promote equity and social justice.
