RCMP officers are on scene at a daycare in La Broquerie, Man., as well as a daycare and school in St-Pierre-Jolys, Man., Thursday afternoon after bomb threats were made towards each location.
Attending officers evacuated the daycare as well as an adjoining school "as a precautionary measure."
Mounties then conducted a preliminary search to ensure all staff and students were evacuated.
The RCMP says that no devices or suspicious items were located and that the area has been secured. Additional resources are en route to continue the investigation.
Thirty-five minutes after the initial threat, at 2:15 pm, the St-Pierre-Jolys RCMP received a similar complaint in relation to its daycare and school in the community. Both buildings were again evacuated.
According to Superintendent Alain Laberge, several schools within Division Scolaire Franco-Manitoban received a bomb threat. The threat came in the form of an e-mail on Thursday at approximately 1 p.m.
Laberge says all students are safe, but some schools were ordered to move to a second location as a precaution.
He notes all schools activated the Emergency Plan which requires keeping everyone indoors and keeping exterior doors locked.
Laberge adds the safety and well-being of students and staff is paramount and it is with complete transparency that they share this information.
More to come.
