Statement Regarding Tragic House Fire

February 19, 2019

All of us at the Halifax Regional Centre for Education were saddened by the news of the tragic house fire on Quartz Drive. Among the fatalities are four children who attended HRCE schools, two at Central Spryfield Elementary and two at Rockingstone Heights.

We have additional staff in place at both schools to provide support to students. They will provide support on site for as long as necessary. Additional information will be shared with families by each school later today.

This is a tremendously difficult day for both school communities and we ask media to refrain from contacting each school at this time so they can focus on supporting the needs of their students and staff.
