LETHBRIDGE, AB – It appears two threats at separate city high schools Tuesday were not connected.

Just after 8am on Dec. 14, Lethbridge Police responded to a report that a threat was received electronically by Winston Churchill High School.

Staff and students were sent home for the day and the school was closed.

Just before noon, threatening statements were found on school property at Lethbridge Collegiate Institute.
