Earl Haig Secondary School students in North York were forced to relocate this morning following a confirmed bomb threat made to the school.
Toronto Police say the threat came in around 10:30 a.m. Wednesday. The investigation concluded around 4:30 p.m. after officers searched the premises and deemed the area to be safe.
“This morning, the school received a phone call warning of a bomb threat at the school. Toronto Police Services were immediately contacted,” said Toronto District School Board (TDSB) spokesperson Ryan Bird in a statement.
“While there is no reason to believe this is a credible threat, to ensure the safety of our students and staff, we have relocated them to neighbouring schools while the investigation continues.”
Bird says all students were dismissed for the remainder of the day “given the time associated with the police search of the building.”
No injuries were reported.
Last week, two Mississauga schools were placed in a hold-a-secure as a precaution following a similar threat.
