Due to RCMP investigating, weekend activities at the school have been cancelled. This is the fifth threat towards a school in the last 14 days in Kamloops, and second at Sa-Hali this week.

Some students took to Snapchat addressing the incident, with most remaining calm and acting as if this was just a regular day.

NowMedia will update the story when more information is available.
