An interruption of classes at Weyburn Comprehensive School Friday morning. A fire alarm went off at the school just before the start of the lunch hour. Students were evacuated from the school until the fire department arrived.  

According to an email sent to parents by WCS, after the fire department investigated the situation, students were then moved into the Cugnet Centre and the SECPSD Maintenance Ship when it was determined those were safe spaces for students to be.  

A plant inspection was done by the fire department, and the cause of the alarm was determined. Students were then dismissed for lunch, and operations for the day returned to normal.
