UPDATED: Information for families regarding reported online threats to Guelph school communities
March 30, 2023
We would like to provide you with an update regarding the general online threats that were reported last night. Guelph Police began investigating this immediately.
On Thursday morning, Guelph Police reported that they believe there is no immediate threat. Police said that one of the images shared on social media was the same one used in a threat against schools in another jurisdiction earlier this month.
Guelph police also said that police youth officers will be making increased visits to local high schools on Thursday “and are available if any anyone wishes to talk, but other than that no significant increased police presence is planned.”
We understand how concerning these situations are for families. Please know that 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.
