Winnipeg High School Receives Non-Specific Bomb Threat

Update as of Friday, December 09, 4:38 PM.

Pembina Trails Division’s Fort Richmond Collegiate received a non-specific bomb threat after classes on Thursday, December 08, 2022. The school day passed with no incidents reported.

The Winnipeg Police Service was called and dispatched to the school. An email from the school was sent to parents, informing them of the situation.

“Today after school, a non-specific bomb threat to the school was found shortly after classes ended. Winnipeg Police Service was immediately called and dispatched to the school. The Police Service has searched the building, and an investigation is underway.”

The school day went smoothly. However, attendance was low as many parents chose not to allow their kids to go to school for their safety.

“I was very surprised when my friend told me to check the email sent by the school, and my friends and I were discussing whether to go or not, and many didn’t come..but everything is going fine, and the school is okay, so maybe it was just a threat,” said a student from Fort Richmond Collegiate.

Winnipeg Police were present at the school and community during the school day Friday. There were also additional clinical supports in the school and the entire staff complement.
