Police Respond To Incident at St. Basil’s School


Morning recess was cancelled this morning at St Basil’s School due to a situation requiring police attention.

A man buzzed the office and requested to enter the school to take pictures.

When his request was denied, the man became irate and proceeded to take pictures anyway, at which point he was asked to leave.

As a precautionary measure, students were kept inside for morning recess and the police were called.

The police were provided with a picture of the man and officers confirmed the man was known to them.

The responding officers did not believe the man posed a danger.

However, they did follow up with the man and warned him to stay off school property.

Staff have been made aware of this morning’s incident and are monitoring the situation.
