Sa-Hali Secondary weekend activities rescheduled after second threat to school

Sa-Hali Secondary is suspending all weekend activities at the school in order to allow Kamloops Mounties to investigate recent threats.

According to a memo posted on the school's website, there was another threat made to the school this morning (Sept. 20). 

"Threats to the school are taken seriously and take a tremendous amount of resources to investigate and to determine the source of the threat," reads the statement. "It is critically important for parents to stress to their children the consequences of these inappropriate actions regarding such matters in any and all school settings."

Classes at Sa-Hali resumed at 1:40 p.m. today.

KamloopsMatters has reached out to the school district and to the RCMP for more information and is waiting to hear back. 

At this time, it's unclear what kind of threat was made at Sa-Hali Secondary this morning. The incident follows five others similar in nature.

Earlier today, there was a threat painted on Dallas Elementary, but classes went on as scheduled.

Yesterday (Sept. 19), a male youth was arrested after he allegedly made a threat on Snapchat against Kamloops Christian School.

On Sept. 18, graffiti reading "there is a bomb" was painted on Sa-Hali Secondary. Police determined the threat was unfounded.

On Sept. 13, graffiti stating "find the bomb" was sprayed on Valleyview Secondary. That threat turned out to be not credible.

On Sept. 10, a teen's "play on words" on Snapchat was taken as a threat against Sa-Hali Secondary.

This story will be updated when we hear back from police and school district staff.
