Deanna Gillis, coordinator of communications with the Strait Regional Centre for Education,
confirmed reports of an incident involving a student bringing a knife into a school Tuesday.

School administration acted immediately once they became aware of the situation, stated Gillis, noting the RCMP and the parents/guardians of all students directly involved were contacted.
