************************

And while we're talking about safety...

You may pass by St. Joe's and wonder...

Why is there a police car parked in front of the school??
 
All schools in Dufferin-Peel participate in the Neighbourhood Policing Unit (NPU) Program.  Each school year, police officers are assigned to work with a specific secondary school and these NPU officers are in our schools almost every day of the week.
 
At St. Joe's this year, our NPU officer is Constable Mark MacIntosh.  His partner is Constable Chris Burgess who is responsible for Rick Hansen S.S. 
 
Constable "Mac" (as he is known) loves St. Joe's and we love him! 
 
In addition to partnering with the school and teachers to provide students with education and information on various topics of community safety and law enforcement, "Mac" goes above and beyond in our school community by doing things like coaching our Girls' Flag Football team and advising our Mock Trial Team as they prepare for competition.
 
He is truly a purple and proud St. Joe's Jaguar!
