The safety of students, staff, and our community neighbours is a priority for Delta School District.
In light of the recent ongoing issues with respect to clothing donation bins the District has decided to disable all donation bins located on our properties.
Across Delta School District there are donation clothing bins at a number of school locations. District staff will be securing the clothing bins shut this week and over the weekend, and will be posting notices that the bins are out of service.
The school district is in conversation with the vendor to discuss next steps.
“Following another tragic death in a clothing donation bin in Toronto, and in the Lower Mainland last month, we feel it is important to ensure the safety of our students and community by locking off these bins,” says Laura Dixon, Chairperson Board of Education.
