Students sent home after Moncton school receives ‘threatening information’ – CTV News – https://t.co/CIZupvMi7q

Students and staff were evacuated from Birchmount School in Moncton yesterday after the school received what the police are calling “information of a threatening nature”. Shortly before 1pm parents were notified that students were being taken to their designated emergency evacuation location at NBCC on Mountain Rd. Police moved in and went through the school and by 3:30 had decided that it was safe for staff to return. Codiac RCMP won’t say what the threat was…only that it came through the internet…but not by email or social media. Birchmount has nearly 500 kids in K-8.
It looks like gas prices are going up tonight…experts say at least 2 cents. They say diesel and furnace oil could jump even higher…maybe as much as 3 cents! Regular self serve has been selling for just under $1.10 a litre here in Greater Moncton. (Check gas prices anytime HERE)
