Officials from the city and Saskatoon Public Schools have agreed to work together on a safety review following the death of the five-year-old Dundonald student Monday.
The boy, Ahmedsadiq Elmmi, was reported missing by staff and École Dundonald School during morning recess Monday, he was found soon after at a pond near the playground and pronounced dead in hospital.
After the tragedy people in the community began to call for a fence or better security measures around the pond.
The death also prompted several investigations and reviews to launch, including by the city and school division.
On Friday the two sides met to discuss how to proceed.
In a statement, City Manager Murray Totland said: “We both agree that working together on the review of this tragedy and to come up with rationale and timely recommendations to increase safety in our community, is in everyone’s best interest.”
The plan is to have people from the city and school division make up a review team, but no timeline for the team’s creation or review was outlined in a release from the city.
In addition, both the Saskatoon Public School Divison and city have agreed to reach out to the Office of the Chief Coroner and the province’s Children’s Advocate to help however they can with those investigations.
