At 11:00 this morning, staff at King George Secondary School received two threatening telephone calls claiming that there was a bomb inside the school. The school quickly implemented lockdown procedures and students were evacuated in a controlled manner out of an abundance of caution.

Police were on scene to ensure the safety of the students and staff. After a thorough search of the school, police now believe that the threat was a hoax.

Police will now be conducting an investigation to determine the origin of the threat.
