School officials and police went to extraordinary lengths on Tuesday to protect Kayla Lemieux, the high school teacher who previously donned giant Z-cup breast prostheses in front of students.
Lemieux drove to a Tim Horton’s coffee shop just blocks from Nora Frances Henderson Secondary School in Hamilton, Ontario, and met with two plainclothes officers from the Halton Regional Police Service.
As in the week before – and seen in exclusive DailyMail.com images – Lemieux presented himself as a man.
There was no sign of the teacher’s long blond wig or the gigantic prosthetic breasts under the tight-fitting tops.
It is not yet known how she will present herself on the first day of class tomorrow – and the school management has not commented either.

Lemieux followed officers to a nearby police station, where they spoke for about 30 minutes – no doubt to discuss measures in place for classes to start at the school on Wednesday.
Meanwhile, a security trio commissioned by the school authorities patrolled the extensive property and monitored the entrances to the two parking lots.
At 9.15am local time, Lemieux arrived at the school accompanied by an unmarked Halton Regional Police Service. She entered the building at the back where her workshop class is located.
Safety precautions are expected to be even tighter on Wednesday morning when students arrive at school for the first day of classes.
In a letter to parents, principal Tom Fisher warned of “possible local media interest and protests” when the school reopens September 6, due to the hiring of an “experiential educator” who has been “recently the subject of public attention” about her gender expression, while teaching at a school in another community.’
Fisher did not name Lemieux, but did explain precautions, including “students must enter and exit the building through assigned doors” and “lock the outside doors during school hours and use only the front main doors during school hours.”
Fisher could not be reached for comment.
It remains to be seen if there will be protests after the Daily Mail revealed Lemieux showed up dressed as a man and with facial hair the week before school.
Lemieux remained silent when a Daily Mail reporter asked her why she had previously claimed the giant prosthetic breasts were real – and didn’t answer when asked if she would be teaching as a woman or as a man.
Lemieux caused chaos last fall when photos circulated showing huge breasts while working at a Canadian high school

Lemieux now works at Nora Francis Henderson Secondary School. The principal warned parents of “possible local media interest and protests”.
The controversial teacher insisted the huge breasts were real – a result of a condition called “gigantomastia” – and said she is not transgender but intersex, meaning he was born with male and female sex organs. Lemieux admitted he had no doctor to back up his claims.
The police do not want to say whether there were threats against Lemieux or the school.
On Tuesday, a lonely woman was waiting on the street in front of the school. “I’ll be back tomorrow,” she said, adding that it was important “to protect the children.”
Lemieux outraged parents and caused chaos last fall when photos of him at work at Oakville Trafalgar High School circulated.
Lemieux was deployed at home earlier this year after the Halton District School Board (HDSB) failed to introduce a dress code that would have tamed the teacher’s cartoonish appearance.
The HDSB complained that its hands were tied by the province’s human rights code.
“The HDSB recognizes the right of students, staff, parents/guardians and community members to equal treatment without discrimination based on gender identity and gender expression,” the board said in a statement. “Gender identity and gender expression are protected grounds under the Ontario Human Rights Code.”
Lemieux’s new employer, the Hamilton-Wentworth Borough of Education – for which he previously worked while teaching engineering at Ancaster High School – remains silent, citing his right to privacy.
According to the Ontario College of Teachers, which certifies educators, “Kerry Luc Lemieux” has been a “well respected” teacher since 2006.
