UPDATE: The hold and secure has been lifted.

Grande Prairie Composite High School has been placed under a hold and secure. At around 11:35 a.m., the Grande Prairie Public School Division put a post out on Facebook saying it was because RCMP was investigating suspicious activity in the area.

Hold and Secures are put into effect when something takes place outside of the school like an animal sighting or police activity. Building doors are locked and students continue on with their day inside. Further updates will be posted as they become available.
