A High School In North York Was Evacuated Following A Bomb Threat According To Police And The Toronto District School Board

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.
