“Our school received a threat today and was on lockdown for a short time. Law enforcement has been notified and is investigating. Teaching and learning are continuing as normal.

All staff and students are safe. Reports of threats or perceived threats are taken very seriously. All incidents of threats or school disruptions are handled according to the Code of Student Conduct and can have serious consequences, including legal action.
