Students and teachers were evacuated from Earl Haig Secondary school on Wednesday after a bomb threat was called in.
The incident was confirmed by the Toronto District School Board spokesperson Ryan Bird, who stated that Toronto Police Services were on the scene.
“Toronto Police Services were immediately contacted and are currently doing a search of the premises,” Bird told CP24.
Students were dismissed for the day because of the time it took for the police to complete their search. Toronto Police told reporters they will be contacting parents to notify them of where to pick up their children.
All students and staff were relocated to neighbouring schools throughout the area for precautionary and safety reasons.
In a statement, Bird reassured the community that “there’s no reason to believe this is a credible threat.”
Toronto Police have confirmed there are no injuries and confirmed their investigation came to a conclusion before 4:30 p.m.
