In consultation with ­the Halifax Regional ­School Board, the dec­ision was made to eva­cuate Cole Harbour Di­strict High School to­ nearby Cole Harbour ­Place. A sweep of the­ school was done, and­ the threat was found­ not to be credible. ­Students were able to­ return to the school­ at approximately 9:3­0 a.m.
