Darcy Knoll, spokesperson for the Ottawa-Carleton District School Board, said there was an altercation at Longfields-Davidson Heights High School and the school then began a “school safety procedure secure”.

“In a secure school, staff and students stay inside their classrooms with the doors locked until the situation is resolved,” Knoll added.

The OPS was on site and providing support Tuesday afternoon, Knoll said, and the school had been in contact with the family of the directly affected student.
