On Monday morning, Arden Elementary implemented a hold and secure security measure as a result of suspicious activity around the school grounds.
RCMP arrived on the scene quickly and, after a thorough investigation, deemed there was no threat to the public. Arden Elementary returned to normal operations without further incident.
A hold and secure is used in response to security threats or criminal activity outside the school.
