Booth Weapon Incident – Secure School

Booth Weapon Incident – Secure School

Neighbouring Schools Notification

June 17, 2014


Dear Parents/Guardians:

I would like to take a few moments to apprise you of a situation at our school today.

This morning our school enacted its secure school protocol on the advice of the Royal Newfoundland Constabulary due to an incident at a neighbouring school, potentially involving a weapon.

Shortly after enacting this protocol, a suspect was apprehended by the RNC and our secure school was lifted. Students have returned to their regular day and are safe.

If you have any questions about this incident please do not hesitate to contact the school’s administration.


Alun Young
