Sacred Heart High School postpones Remembrance Day assemblies after threat

A Stittsville high school has postponed its Remembrance Day assemblies due to a threatening piece of graffiti recently discovered in a bathroom stall.

According to a letter addressed to parents and guardians of students at Sacred Heart High School, there is “no evidence the threat is legitimate.”

“However, every threat made on our school, whether it’s via social media post or a graffiti tag, is taken very seriously,” principal Brent Hopkins wrote in the letter, which is dated Nov. 8 and was posted online on Saturday. 

The letter says that the threat “came in the form of graffiti on a bathroom stall stating a bombing and/or shooting would take place in the library or theatre” on Monday.  

The Abbott Street E.-Shea Road school falls under the Ottawa Catholic School Board and serves Grades 7 to 12.
