Some Safety Measures for Schools/Playgrounds

There has been discussion in recent months about city residents finding items of concern, such as used needles, both in public places and on school grounds. As you know, such items may pose a risk to individuals who come in contact with them. Please find attached three posters created by the regional health authorities; one informs students not to touch such items if found, another addresses students in French, and the third poster instructs adults on the proper way to dispose of such items if necessary.
