Smiths Falls Police are investigating a threat directed at Duncan J Scholar School.

The school had been placed in a Hold and Secure situation, which was then downgraded to a Shelter in Place. Students were dismissed at regular time and the school confirmed that all students and staff are safe.

During the Shelter in Place, all exterior doors of the building were locked but the school day continued as normal.

These actions were taken out of “an abundance of caution” according to the school’s Facebook page.
