Parents of children attending Quigley Elementary School in Kelowna‘s Rutland neighbourhood were alerted just before noon Monday that the school was on evacuation notice.

RCMP later said it was due to a potential threat, though didn’t indicate what that threat was or why it prompted a change in school plans.

In a missive sent out to parents and guardians at the time, the district only indicated that the evacuation was at the behest of RCMP and students have been relocated to a Hollywood Road facility.

In a statement made later in the day, the district said the move was “out of an abundance of caution,” and RCMP would continue to investigate.
