A Brampton school was evacuated in response to a threat made against the facility, police say.
Shortly before 8:00 a.m., Peel police announced that officers were in the Williams Parkway and Bramalea Rd. area in relation to a threat at Chinguacousy Secondary School.

A bulletin posted to the school’s website says that, last night, a student reported to police that they had overheard a threat that they felt police should be made aware of.
