The Algoma District School Board (ADSB) in cooperation with the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) advise parents of students at Thessalon Public School that a suspicious person has been reported in the area of the school.
The OPP are patrolling the area and are working closely with the school to ensure the safety of all students and staff.
As a safety measure, families are being contacted to come at the end of the school day to pick up students who would typically walk home. Students who are bused will be transported as usual at the end of the day.
Families and the community will be notified of any further developments should they arise.
