With the end of another COVID school year coming to a close, we are hopeful that we can return to some sense of ‘normal’ in the Fall.  On behalf of the Bert Bowes staff, we would like to thank you for your support and understanding while we navigate through these challenging times together. Some important information to consider as we conclude… The final FULL day for students will be Monday, June 21st.  On June 22nd and 23rd, only those students who were invited to come in to complete projects or outstanding work will be required to come in. There will be a HALF day of school on Thursday, June 24th with buses running 3 hours earlier than normal (12:00pm). We ask that all textbooks and library books be returned to the school as soon as possible for yearend storage. If you have any plans for the Fall that we should be made aware of, please contact the school as soon as possible so we can make plans for these changes. Please note, the school will be closed for the summer from June 28th to August 30th. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the school office. Have a safe and relaxing summer with your children! Bert Bowes Middle School Administration

Good afternoon everyone.

I want to take this time to update parents/families on the events that took place earlier today at the school. Around 1pm, we received a phone call alluding to a ‘bomb in the building’ and immediately moved to our safety protocols for this type of event. The RCMP were contacted and we began to take our direction from them at that time. Students and staff were evacuated to our mustering area beside the Key Learning Center where we remained until given the all-clear at 3:30pm.

Students responded very well and we are very proud of how they conducted themselves during the event.

In further conversations with the RCMP, it was determined that the telephone call was a prank call and there was no threat to students or staff. The RCMP shared that the individuals who made the call were identified and further conversations with the RCMP and families are expected.

With regards to obvious concerns around student’s personal items left behind, we will be opening the doors for students at 8:00am on Friday morning to allow groups of students to quickly come in and collect their items. This will be supervised to ensure it is safely done. At this time, the building is locked and all items are secured for the night!

NOTE: classes will resume on Friday morning.

I want to thank all staff for thier amazing work in ensuring students were safe and calm during our evacuation process as well.

Thank you,

Jason Gill

Principal, BBMS
