Information for families regarding reported online threats to Guelph school communities
March 29, 2023
We wanted to provide you with information regarding general online threats being made against schools Wednesday night. These reported threats follow similar threats made online to various schools in the GTA earlier this month.
Multiple school boards are aware of these threats and there is a heightened concern and vigilance across school boards as a result.
We understand that there is concern in the community regarding these incidents. We are aware that similar threats have been made against a number of schools recently in Ontario. We take every incident of threats such as this very seriously, and work with police to investigate each one thoroughly to bring those responsible to account.
We contacted police Wednesday night and they are investigating. We are thankful for the support of our police partners and they will continue to support us with any information that may come our way. We will continue to share information with families as we receive updates from police.
We understand that these incidents are upsetting to all. If students need any support, please reach out to your school administrators. Support is available.
