Dave Sloan, Superintendent with School District 60, says the school was placed in a hold and secure due to a threat that was received on social media.

Sloan said that the situation on social media was made aware to school administration and School District 60’s threat analysis protocol was initiated.

“We are confident with the police on site that there is minimal risk to students but it is one of the precautionary steps that needs to be taken to keep everyone safe.”
