Westminster Elementary School is fortunate to have a team of professionals to provide service to our families and students. Support Services are voluntary and confidential, unless a student discloses information that they have the intent to harm themselves or another person, OR that someone is harming them. Students may be seen by a member of the Care Team when it is requested by parents, staff, outside agencies or students themselves.

Fair Notice of Risk/Threat Assessment
Our School District believes in creating safe and caring environments for students and staff. Any incident where a student engages in behaviour which threatens or appears to threaten the safety of others will be investigated. Administrators can implement a Risk Assessment for behaviours that are worrisome including writing or drawings with violent themes; references to or involvement in violent activity at school; or an increased interest in activities that are deemed as dangerous to the safety of others. A Threat Assessment is implemented when a student threatens to kill or injure others, brings a weapon to school, or makes direct verbal or written violent threats to others.
