Students and staff evacuated from a middle school in Port Moody Thursday morning have returned to class following a police investigation. 

The school was evacuated earlier in what School District 43 spokesperson Ken Hoff described as an “evolving situation.”

Both the Port Moody Police Department as well as a spokesperson for the school district said the situation was ongoing but would not provide details on what prompted the evacuation. SD43 had advised parents and guardians to stay away from the school while police investigated.

Within minutes, Port Moody police tweeted the situation had been resolved and all students and staff were back in class.

Despite Tweets announcing the incident, PMPD Sgt. Ian Morrison said, at this time, “We’re not going to get into what it is.”
