St. Thomas Aquinas students bussed in this morning were diverted to Tottenham Community Centre while OPP investigated a reported threat of violence that turned out to be directed to a same named school in Brampton.

St. Thomas Aquinas put on lock down as safety measure following general threat

Posted April 20, 2017

St. Thomas Aquinas students and staff arrived to school this morning in Tottenham to a heavy police presence and immediately put on lock-down following a threat of violence issued over social media, though it did not specify the location.

"Since there is a St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic Secondary School in our area, officers attended on scene prior to the school opening and redirected arriving students to an alternate location. Following a thorough search of the school and an investigation by the Nottawasaga OPP Crime Unit, students were able to return to the school shortly after," OPP reported this morning.

"Investigation revealed that the text message originated from the Brampton area and that there was no information directed specifically to St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic Secondary School in Tottenham, but the search was conducted for the safety of the students, which was our priority."

Reportedly, Peel Region Police have made an arrest in connection to the incident in Brampton.
