Lockdown implemented at Oakville high school due to prank

An Oakville school was locked down earlier today (October 28) for what appears to be a prank.

At 2 p.m. this afternoon, Halton Regional Police Service (HRPS) attended Gaetan-Gervais Secondary School in relation to reports of threatening texts that were received by a small group of students.

The messages were sent to the students by a number they were not familiar with, and, as a result, Gaetan-Gervais Secondary School was put in lockdown, while nearby White Oaks Secondary School was put in hold and secure.

While the investigation is still on-going, initial information available indicates the messages might have been sent as a prank–the sender of the messages is still undetermined, and no arrests have been made at this time.
