On September 9, 2013 shortly after 9:30 a.m., Halton police were called to a residence on Sixth Line for a ‘disturbance’.

A preliminary investigation determined the suspects involved had fled on foot and were possibly armed with various weapons. Out of an abundance of caution, a number of area schools were put into ‘Hold and Secure’ mode.

A ‘Hold and Secure’ is a response to a threat in the general vicinity of a school, but NOT to the school itself or occupants within.

The following schools were affected:

  • Munn’s Public School, 1511 Sixth Line
  • River Oaks Public School, 2173 Munns Avenue
  • White Oaks S.S. (North Campus), 1055 McCraney Street
  • Post’s Corners Public School, 2220 Caldwell Drive
  • St. Andrew Elementary School, 145 Millbank Drive

At 10:47 a.m., all schools resumed normal operations.

The police investigation into this incident is ongoing and additional details will be released once known.
