Around 10:30 am this morning December 2nd, 2019 Port Hope High School received an anonymous tip from a community member that a threat was being made against the school. Port Hope Police Service immediately instituted a lockdown. Students were kept in their classroom while police did a room by room search. An 18 year old male was taken into custody at his residence and was released later unconditionally as there4 was no viable threat.
