All clear given at Bear Creek high school following morning 'threat'

Situation at Red Oak Drive school was cleared within about 30 minutes, police say

An early morning scare at a south-end Barrie school has now been given the all clear.

City police received a call around 7:30 a.m., Tuesday, about a “threat to the school." 

Barrie police communications coordinator Jennett Mays said the situation was investigated out and deemed all clear within 30 minutes.

“The threat to the school call received the appropriate response from our officers, who investigated and within a half hour gave the OK for everyone to go inside,” said Mays. “Everything is back to normal and studies have resumed.”

Police did not specify what the threat was.

The Simcoe County District School Board tweeted shortly after 8 a.m. that a threat was reported at the Red Oak Drive high school this morning. “The school was evacuated and police were called," the tweet said. 

The tweet confirmed that staff and students have returned to the regular school day.
