SASKATOON – Police and fire are currently investigating a bomb threat at St. Joseph High School in Saskatoon.

A threat was phoned in to the school and administration contacted police.

The Greater Saskatoon Catholic Schools board (GSCS) has confirmed students were immediately evacuated to the soccer centre and cathedral around 11:15 a.m.

Police are working with school officials to search the building and the surrounding area.

Police are asking everyone to avoid the area as traffic may be restricted.

GSCS says parents whose children are at the soccer centre can pick them up from there but they must walk to the building from the east.

Students who are at the cathedral are being moved to Mother Theresa where they can then be picked up by parents.

The Saskatoon School Board says classes at Centennial Collegiate, which is also located on Nelson Road, are running as scheduled.
