Police investigate threat at Bear Creek Secondary School in Barrie

Bear Creek Secondary School students are back in class after a brief incident Sept. 14.

As students arrived at the property, they were asked to assemble on a football field, instead of going to class.

“A threat was reported this morning at Bear Creek,” Simcoe County District School Board communications manager Sarah Kekewich said. “The school was evacuated and police were called.”

She said Barrie police investigated and determined the school was safe.

Barrie Police said the threat was unfounded. 

Students and staff returned to class shortly after 8 a.m.
