A message from the Department of Education

Late Friday afternoon (Feb. 21st), law enforcement received an anonymous tip suggesting that an unknown person would bring a firearm to a school.

An extensive investigation, involving all police agencies in the province, and in consultation with school officials, failed to turn up any information that would suggest that this threat was credible.

Given the fact that investigating these types of incidents often results in rumours and false assumptions, all involved felt that the public should be made aware of the information that was received.

All members of the public are reminded that threats of any nature will be fully investigated and subject to prosecution.

Schools across the province will be open on Monday.

A video of the full media briefing with the Department of Education and police officials can be viewed on the Government of Prince Edward Island’s Facebook page: www.facebook.com/govpe.
