Attendance at Sturgeon Heights Collegiate is at parents’ discretion today after a threatening message was found at the school on Monday.
Parents were notified yesterday afternoon that a message of a ‘threatening nature’ was spray painted inside a washroom.
Grade 12 students are set to begin a 3 hour English exam this morning at 8:30 a.m., which as a source tells ChrisD.ca, “It may be just student shenanigans.”
No one from the school or the St. James-Assiniboia School Division was available for comment at the time this story was published.
UPDATE: 9:15 a.m. — The school was placed into lockdown for a brief period of time this morning. About 15 police officers arrived on scene, and left a short time later. All students are reported to be safe.
