At 8:05 a.m., we received a call from the Principal at Sudbury Secondary School regarding a potential threat to the school.

The school had received a bomb threat via email and immediately contacted Police.

The school initiated its protocols and students and staff were safely evacuated.

Officers arrived on scene in order to determine the credibility and validity of the potential threat.

Officers, with the assistance of staff, completed a thorough sweep of the school and did not locate anything suspicious.

Shortly after 10:15 a.m., students and staff were permitted to re-enter the school as it was determined that the threat to the school was not credible.

The Greater Sudbury Police Service and Rainbow District School Board take these matters very seriously.

Officers continue to investigate this matter in order to determine the origin of the threat.

We would like to thank the staff and students of Sudbury Secondary School for their cooperation and patience during the investigation.
