Dear Parents and Guardians,
We want to address the misinformation that is circulating this morning regarding a “gun incident” at Chippewa Secondary School.
Near North District School Board (NNDSB) was in contact with North Bay Police Service this morning about the social media and media coverage of what was being called a “gun incident”. A threat had been made late last week, police investigated and resolved the situation over the weekend.
This morning, in an abundance of caution, police attended the school to further ensure the safety of members of the Chippewa school community.
There is not, nor has there been a viable concern to student and staff safety. The North Bay Police Service says there was no incident and will be issuing a media release about this later today.
NNDSB wants to ensure all stakeholders that safety and well-being is our primary concern; we value the relationship we have with our police partners for their support.
Thank you for your support.
Near North District School Board
