Emergency crews responded to a bomb threat at Aden Bowman Collegiate Institute Tuesday morning.
A letter sent to parents by principal Paul Humbert said police were called immediately after an emailed threat said there was a “potential explosive device” in the school.
The threat was determined to be low-level with no risk to staff and students. Classes weren’t disrupted as police investigated.
Police confirmed Tuesday afternoon the bomb threat was connected to the recent white powder scares in Saskatoon.
They said since April 11, five Saskatoon businesses have received threats suggesting an explosive device was in the building. Aden Bowman was the fifth.
April 11 is the same day Alexa Emerson, also known as Amanda Totchek, was taken into custody for the white powder deliveries.
Emerson faces 69 charges already, and is behind bars until a bail hearing on May 9.
Police said they’re not seeking another suspect, but they are still looking for a woman who sent a video to local media claiming she was involved.
