Hold & secure lifted at D'Arcy McGee Catholic School

A hold-and-secure has been lifted at D’Arcy McGee Catholic School, near Oakwood Drive and Vaughan Road.

Principal Tony Casole told CityNews that police asked for the alert around 12:30 p.m. on Thursday. But it was lifted at 1:45 p.m. He said police were investigating a possible bomb threat.

They held recess indoor because of the cold, Casole said.

Toronto police didn’t say why the school was placed in a hold-and-secure.

According to the Toronto District School Board website, when a school is placed under hold and secure, all movement in and out of the school is restricted. However, there is no immediate danger to students and staff.

A lock down is only used when the danger is inside the school or on school property.
