WINNIPEG – Students had an early dismissal at Fort Richmond Collegiate Tuesday afternoon after someone released pepper spray inside one of the washrooms.
None of the students were sprayed directly but staff did close off the area and opened windows to circulate fresh air.
The school was evacuated as a precaution.
Police were contacted but there’s no word if any charges have been laid.
Crews will be working through the night to ventilate and clean the building.
