Students are back in class after a bomb threat kicked off the school week in Orillia.
The Simcoe Muskoka Catholic District School Board this morning said an unsubstantiated threat received at Patrick Fogarty Catholic Secondary School before the first bell meant students were not permitted within the school until police dug deeper.
Due to an unsubstantiated threat received prior to the start of the school day at Patrick Fogarty CSS in Orillia students will not be permitted into the school until the police have completed an investigation. Further updates will be provided as they are made available.
