A bit of a snag in the school day in Angus today, after Nottawasaga Pines Secondary School was put into a hold and secure state this morning.
Notice came around 10:00, from the Simcoe County District School Board that says this was a precautionary measure only, and that all the students and staff were safe inside the building,
Nottawasaga Pines Secondary School has been placed in a hold and secure as a precautionary measure while police attend to a situation outside of the building. Students and staff are safe. Updates to follow.@NPSSnews— Simcoe County DSB (@SCDSB_Schools) September 19, 2019
The Hold and Secure state was prompted by reports of police activity outside, in the general area of the school, as officers searched for a wanted suspect.
Nottawasaga OPP has yet to specify why they were searching for the suspect. The Hold and Secure was lifted shortly before noon.
