AURORA HIGH SCHOOL 911 – PLEASE HELP!

 

Concerned Parents are desperate for help over growing concerns about Student and Teacher Safety at Aurora High School after escalating incidents lead to the November 5th School Lockdown, Arrest and rumor of a gun.

 

Attn: School Board, Trustees, Region of York, Principal, Teacher Unions, York Regional Police.

 

Parents, students and concerned residents, please help sign this petition to help demonstrate the importance of student and teacher safety in our beloved Aurora High School.

We ask that Principal Voumkavis, York Region Trustee Bob McRobert, York Region School Board Chair Corrie McBain, Louise Sirisko Director of education, Aurora High School Council, The Town of Aurora, The Region of York and York Regional Police formally address student and teacher safety in the face of escalating incidents at Aurora High School:

1)      Hold & Secure – “Kill List” & subsequent rumor that a gun was found at student premises.  Date: October 4, 2019

2)      Student Suicide – Aaron Bank-Sedore Date: Oct 8, 2019 (Link Below)

3)      Video of Aurora High School Students Fighting Date: October 29, 2019  (Link Below)

4)      Gang Related Activity using Social Media Post  (image of gun with the words “whoever tried talking sh*t to ­­­­­______(gang) Boy at school today. Is gonna get it”) – Date: November 4, 2019

5)      Hold & Secure Lockdown & Gun Rumor – lockdown lifted, student arrested Date: November 5, 2019 (Link Below)

6)      Strong Rumors of Male Gang Related Bullying of Female Students on School Premises.

7)      Teachers no longer feel safe in the school and are virtually powerless in the face of the Hold & Secure Lockdown scenarios.

8)      Daily “Close Call” traffic related incidents on Murray Drive in front of the school property due to the lack of proper supervision, traffic management and / or traffic lights.

9)      Student, Teacher and Parent PTSD related to lockdown protocol where the classroom doors are locked and students are required to hide behind desks with little to no communication.

Please let this petition serve as a sign of how desperate the parents are for help and that we have no other means to help get the message out.

Please sign this petition to help make a difference in our students and teachers’ lives. 

Please take a moment to email any other concerned parties. 

We need your voice before it’s too late.
