Stanley Humphries closed following fire

Stanley Humphries Secondary is closed today following a fire in a light fixture in the gym after school on Thursday.

Principal Chantal St-Jacques says the fire department responded quickly and those staff and students still in the building were able to leave safely. The fire was put out.

However, to ensure the safety of the building, the school will not be in session today, which would have been the last prior to spring break.

St-Jacques acknowledges some students may have left items they need in their lockers or classrooms. She says they will provide access to the school after assessing the site for safety.
