Around 1 p.m., the RCMP notified school staff of what appeared to be a handmade explosive device in our neighbourhood, which prompted a short “hold-and-secure” alert. The discovery of the device was not related to the school and happened two blocks away. The hold-and-secure measure was taken only as a precaution to ensure school safety. At no time was there a direct threat to staff or students.
RCMP further informed us that there was no risk to the neighbourhood or children. The hold and secure was lifted and children will be dismissed at the end of the day as usual.
Should you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact Dallas school administration.
