A high school in Milton was in lockdown for most of the day after someone called in a bomb threat.

Halton Regional Police officers are searched inside Jean Vanier Secondary School, located in the Bronte Street and Britannia Road West area, as well as the surrounding property.

Sgt. Chantal Corner says all staff and students are safe.

She says a male called in a bomb threat just before 10:30am Wednesday and the principal declared the lockdown shortly after.

Cars with worried parents inside lined the streets nearby after they learned of the threat.

The lockdown was lifted around 4 o'clock, and students were being taken to another facility where their parents could come and pick them up.

No arrests have been made and no bomb was ever found.

    What sickens me is that if this is true, that there was a real bomb threat, those children where kept in the school for 5 hours with that suspicion. They were not evacuated knowing of this possibility? Still as a parent, we have no answers and are unsure of what happened. That is ridiculous and having 2 kids in that school, it should have been dealt with much better. That is not safety for our kids if they are left in a school with that kind of a threat.

      @Jane If it was a decoy bomb threat and there was a gunman outside the school would you want them released then?
