Students at North Peace Secondary School are getting an unscheduled holiday today, due to what are initially being sighted as rumored security concerns.

There are few details at this time but just minutes ago District 60 superintendent Larry Espe, issued this statement…


There have a number of contradictory reports, as to what police may be investigating, but none of them has yet been confirmed.

Just after 8am, the School District posted the following message on it’s website.

*”**Classes at North Peace Senior Secondary School **have been cancelled today, Friday, March 19 **in order that we might thoroughly investigate some safety concerns that have been reported to staff and the RCMP.  We are exercising extreme caution as we work to determine whether there is any real threat to student and staff safety.  Further information will be forthcoming.”*
