A lockdown order has been removed at Longue Sault Public School and all staff and students are safe.
The school went into lockdown shortly before 1 p.m. Thursday after a man with a weapon was reported to be walking in the community. Provincial police rushed to the scene and cordoned off the school and conducted a thorough search.
Buses were delayed, said Upper Canada District School Board superintendent David Coombs.
About 2:30 p.m., police called off the search and gave the all clear for the lockdown to be removed and for students to be bused home.
