Regiopolis-Notre Dame Catholic Secondary School was briefly put under hold and secure over lunchtime on Wednesday.

No threats were made to the school, and Kingston police media officer Cam Mack said the hold and secure had nothing to do with last week’s lockdowns.

On Dec. 5, Reigiopolis was the first high school to be targeted in a series of threats against eight schools in the city on Dec. 5 and 6. Over both days, 10 schools were locked down and several others were put under hold and secures. In each case, Kingston police say the threats were unsubstantiated.
