Students from a North York school were forced to relocate as police investigated a bomb threat.
Police say the threat to Earl Haig Secondary School came in around 10:30 a.m. Wednesday.
“This morning, the school received a phone call warning of a bomb threat at the school. Toronto Police Services were immediately contacted and are currently doing a search of the premises,” 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 have been dismissed for the remainder of the day “given the time associated with the police search of the building.”
Just before 4:30 p.m. police confirmed their investigation had concluded, adding there would be no additional information provided at this time.
No injuries were reported.
