HALIFAX – Police say they will be present at three schools in Halifax today after unspecified threats were made against them.

Officers say they will be at Caledonia Junior High School, Rocky Lake Junior High School and Ian Forsyth Elementary as a precaution.

A police statement says they were notified of the threats at about 10 a.m. Wednesday and are investigating.

They say they do not believe students are at risk and school closures were not necessary.

In a message sent to parents, Caledonia principal Lisa Vaughan says the school contacted police after learning about a threat and that “the safety of students and staff is priority.”

Police are asking anyone with information about the alleged threats to contact them or Crime Stoppers, but have not said what the threat was or how it was made.
