Mountain View School Division Explains Hold and Secure in Dauphin

For 20 to 30 minutes yesterday Dauphin schools were put under what is called a hold and secure.
 During the afternoon the doors for the schools were locked, and only students and known individuals were allowed in.
 
 Classes continued as usual.
 
 Donna Davidson CEO of Mountain View school division talks about what started the process for putting Dauphin schools into a hold and secure status.  
 
"Essentially, what happened yesterday afternoon, was a student was coming back from lunch and reported to the Principal that they had, what would appear as an individual that had in his/her possession a fire arm. And when this was reported to the Principal, the Principal obviously contacted the RCMP, the RCMP started to investigate, and for a precautionary measure, we always, when there's situations happening in our community that does not directly involve the school, we go into what is called a hold and secure status."
 
The hold and secure was lifted around 2 pm yesterday afternoon after RCMP declared the areas secure.
