Provincial Police are trying to find out who left bullets in a hallway of a Caledon school.

St Cornelius Catholic Elementary School in Caledon East was placed under a hold and secure around 1 o'clock on Thursday as a result of the find.

Officers from the OPP brought in the canine unit and searched the entire school, including students' backpacks.

Bruce Campbell with the Dufferin-Peel Catholic District School Board says the search turned up nothing out of the ordinary and no weapon was ever found.

He says they are still not sure where the bullets came from, or who belong to, but police are still investigating.

The school houses students from kindergarten to grade 8.

Dear Parents and Guardians:

This afternoon, our school was placed in Hold and Secure as a result of the discovery of a package containing three bullets found on school property. Caledon OPP are investigating. We are co-operating closely with the OPP who advise, based on their preliminary investigation, that they do not believe there is any safety concern for the school.

As you would be aware, we strive to make sure that St. Cornelius is a safe, caring, healthy and inclusive environment for all. This is an unusual occurrence, but one we take very seriously. As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Sincerely,

Adriana Tavares
Principal
