“DRPS has concluded their investigation and found there to be no credible threat. Maxwell Heights SS will reopen tomorrow,” said a DDSB alert yesterday. “Scheduled permits will proceed as planned.”

DDSB said the threat was discovered yesterday morning. It worked with DRPS to manage the situation. “We made the decision to close the school to give emergency services time to investigate. Students will be asked to return home. Further updates will be provided,” it had said.

DRPS, in an update, said: “Police have concluded their investigation into the reported bomb threat, and at this time, there is no credible information supporting the validity of the threat. If you require additional details about the school’s operations, please reach out to the DDSB for further information.”
