This morning, RCMP officers advised Northeast Kings Education Centre and Glooscap Elementary School to enter Hold and Secure mode, in response to a report of a person with a firearm on the road near our school.
We followed this direction immediately, and remained in Hold and Secure mode for a brief time. Shortly after 9 a.m., RCMP advised that the situation was resolved and that it was safe to return to normal operations.
This incident appears to be hunter-related. At no time were our students or staff threatened.
We want to thank our staff and students of for cooperating during this situation. We appreciate the RCMP for working closely with our schools to ensure everyone’s safety.
