At about 1:25 p.m., a lockdown was initiated at our school, as a precautionary measure, after receiving a report of a possible weapon in our school. We immediately followed the appropriate lockdown procedure while Peel Regional Police investigated. This meant that all interior and classroom doors were locked, and staff and students, who were in the building, were on the floor in the rooms with all blinds drawn.
At 2:10 p.m., police lifted the lockdown and assured us that there was no threat to student or staff safety. During their investigation, they located a replica cap gun. Students and staff are safe.
We take these situations very seriously, and we will always take whatever steps are necessary to ensure the safety of students and staff. Please contact the school if you have any questions.
