Letter Sent home to ECES Families May 9th, 2018http://ern.scdsb.on.ca/about-us/news/school-news/117Letter Sent home to ECES Families May 9th, 2018<p>May 9, 2018</p><p>Dear Ernest Cumberland ES Families, <br></p><p>I'm writing to tell you about something that happened at our school today. Around 11:30 a.m., staff noticed the odour of gas. We called emergency services and the local fire department and utility company attended to investigate.  <br></p><p>The odour was due to a gas line being struck in the area of 8<sup>th</sup> Avenue and Holt Drive. The fire department checked our school and school yard, and advised that it was safe to remain in the school as well as go outside for recess, as the leak was far enough away. No evacuation was needed. <br></p><p>As always, we take whatever precautions are necessary to keep our students and staff safe. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me at the school.<br></p><p>Sincerely,<em><br></em></p><p>Greg Blakeley </p><p>Principal</p>
