At Oromocto High School, it is our priority to keep
you informed of incidents related to student safety.
This afternoon, a handwritten threatening message was brought to our
attention. As the safety and security of students, teachers and staff is
of utmost importance, we activated our Comprehensive School Safety Plan, and
placed the school in a state of hold and secure at approximately 3:10
p.m. We also immediately notified the RCMP. After a preliminary
investigation by the RCMP it was determined there was no credible threat and
the hold and secure was lifted at approximately 3:40 p.m. The matter
remains under investigation.
We understand situations such as this are concerning
to parents, students, staff and the greater community. Please be assured that
Oromocto High School treats situations like this seriously to ensure student,
teacher and staff safety at all times. We will remain vigilant in our efforts
to make our school a safe place to learn and teach.
The school will be open tomorrow as usual.
