Classes expected to resume at Halifax school where two staff members were stabbed

HALIFAX – Students at the Halifax-area school where two staff members were stabbed Monday are expected to return to class this afternoon.

The region’s school authority has said a team of 20 counsellors and psychologists were at the school Tuesday, when 15 students came in to receive counselling.

The Halifax Regional Centre for Education says the school was opened again this morning to students seeking support, and classes were to resume at 12:45 p.m.

Halifax Regional Police issued a statement Tuesday saying the two victims — both employees of Charles P. Allen High School in Bedford — were listed in serious but stable condition in hospital.

A 15-year-old student has been charged with two counts of attempted murder.

The school authority had originally planned to resumes classes Tuesday afternoon, but that plan changed as reports surfaced about teachers complaining about a lack of support and saying they did not feel safe.

This report by The Canadian Press was first published March 22, 2023.
