Friday, February 22, 2019, 10:00 a.m. – An odour, thought to be natural gas, was detected by staff at Whispering Ridge Community School this morning. Staff are currently in the process of evacuating students to the nearby Grande Prairie Alliance Church. Students and staff are safe and accounted for, and are following the prescribed evacuation procedure. The fire department is currently checking the school. An update will be posted as soon as we receive more information.

 

What is an evacuation?
