UPDATE 2: School will continue as normal Wednesday at Lethbridge Collegiate Institute. Police have determined, through their investigation, there is no evidence to suggest an immediate threat.

UPDATE: Lethbridge Police say they’re now investigating threats at L.C.I. and looking to see if there is any connection to a threat at Winston Churchill earlier in the day.

BACKGROUND:

First it was Winston Churchill High School, now a L.C.I.

The Lethbridge School Division evacuated Lethbridge Collegiate Institute around 12:30 pm Tuesday, sending all staff and students home for the rest of the day.

This comes only a few hours after Winston Churchill (WCHS) was evacuated following an unspecified threat. Lethbridge Police have been at WCHS since about 9:00 am.

No other details have been released on either situation.

Regarding the situation at L.C.I, the public division released this statement around 12:30 pm:

“Students and staff will be going home for the remainder of the day. Students who walk or drive will be asked to leave the school and go home for the day. Students who take the bus or will be waiting for a ride from parents will be kept in classrooms until the bus or parent arrives. Once individuals have evacuated the building, the school administration and Division office will be working with police to ensure the school is safe. Safety is at the forefront of decision making, and we feel this precautionary measure is necessary.”
