This morning, at approximately 8 a.m., Humberview Secondary School administrators were contacted by the Ontario Provincial Police who indicated that they were investigating a report of a threat against the school involving a weapon. At no time did police indicate that a hold-and-secure or lockdown were necessary, as they determined students and staff were not at risk. School staff cooperated fully with police this morning, and will continue to do so, as the police investigation is ongoing.
Reports of any inappropriate behaviour are naturally disturbing to everyone, and we take these very seriously. The Peel District School Board has a clear set of expectations for student behaviour, as outlined in its Safe Schools policy. The policy clearly outlines potential consequences, including a number of progressive discipline consequences up to and including expulsion.
All members of the school community have a responsibility to respect and honour the school Code of Conduct. If you have any questions about today's incident, please contact the school. As always, the safety and well-being of students and staff remains our top priority.
