LCVI, Katarokwi Learning Centre, Lord Strathcona, Polson Park, and Centennial Public Schools were placed into Hold and Secure for approximately 30 minutes. This stemmed from an altercation between two people at the Kingston Centre. 

A Hold and Secure is instituted as a precautionary measure when there is a potential threat to school safety in the vicinity of schools.  Normal operations continue inside of schools, but exterior doors are locked and students/staff are brought inside the building.  

At approximately 2:15 p.m. the Hold and Secure was lifted by Kingston Police.

The Limestone District School Board is situated on traditional territories of the Anishinaabe & Haudenosaunee.
