Online threat results in evacuation of Hunting Hills High School

Bike-A-Thon was scheduled to take place overnight at the Red Deer school

An online threat has been made against the Hunting Hills High School this evening resulting in the cancellation of the school’s Bike-A-Thon.

On Nov. 7th at approximately 7 p.m. Red Deer RCMP were alerted to a lock down initiated by school officials at the Hunting Hills High School after a veiled online threat was posted on social media.

Officials then called police, who attended and cleared the school. Police have not substantiated the threat at this time, and the matter remains under investigation. There were approximately 500 students in the school at the time for a 24 hour Bike-a-Thon event. To further ensure the safety of the participants, school officials elected to cancel the remainder of the event.

Students at Hunting Hills, as well as all schools across the Red Deer Public School District, are off today for their scheduled Staff Learning Day. Officials say Red Deer Public Schools staff will be focused on professional growth and collaborative planning activities.

More details will be released tomorrow as information is made available.
