All schools in P.E.I. are under an evacuation order due to a potential threat, say police.
Parents and guardians can now pick up their children from the safe locations, which are identified in each school’s evacuation plan. Parents can go to the school, where staff will direct them to the safe locations, said the province’s Department of Education.
Earlier, a police news release said school staff were taking students to safe locations in the community, and buses would meet the children there.
Child-care centres in schools will follow the schools’ evacuation procedures. Other child-care centres will operate as usual.
The University of Prince Edward Island and Holland College are also closed.
