Halifax West High School

School Response to Social Media threat - Sunday May 27th

Good Morning students, parents, guardians and staff

Last night Halifax Regional Police investigated complaints about a student who had made posts on Social Media about making and placing explosive devices at Halifax West.  Through their investigation they have determined that the student did not have the means nor the intent to carry out this threat.

We are contacting you this morning to assure you that the school is safe, and we want to thank those of you who reached out to inform us and the Halifax Regional Police about this situation.
