“RCMP community youth safety officers and other members attended the scene, and as a result a fight did not occur. RCMP and staff continue to investigate the source of the occurrence.”

Central Okanagan Public Schools said the safety measure brought students back into KSS, “10 minutes before the end of the lunch period, where they remained in classrooms until all non-KSS students dispersed and the regular class schedule resumed.”
