DELTA Police on Thursday morning said that there is no threat to Delta Secondary School or to the students attending the school after they investigated a rumour that emerged on social media on March 14.
“The rumour arose as a result of a disagreement between two students, that continued over social media after a verbal altercation yesterday,” said Cris Leykauf, public affairs coordinator for Delta Police.
Police met with one of the involved parties, and school board staff were involved with families of both students throughout Wednesday evening. Discussions between police and school administration continued the night of March 14, to determine if there were any threats to the safety of the students.
“We want to thank the students who came forward [on Wednesday] with information, as police and the school administration were able to quickly investigate the rumours. Delta police have confirmed there is no threat to Delta Secondary School or to the students attending the school,” said Leykauf. “However, police will be at the school today, March 15, to provide support and answer any questions.”
