Message From Public Schools Branch

Late Friday afternoon (Feb. 21st), law enforcement received an anonymous tip suggesting that an unknown person would bring a firearm to a school.

An extensive investigation, involving all police agencies in the province, and in consultation with school officials, failed to turn up any information that would suggest that this threat was credible.

 Given the fact that investigating these types of incidents often results in rumours and false assumptions, all involved felt that the public should be made aware of the information that was received.

 All members of the public are reminded that threats of any nature will be fully investigated and subject to prosecution.

 Schools across the province will be open on Monday.

 A video of the full media briefing with the Department of Education and police officials can be viewed on the Government of Prince Edward Island’s Facebook page:

Thank you for your leadership and patience at this time.

Important Notice 

Instruction begins at 8:35 am each day, so please ensure that if you’re dropping your child(ren) off, that he or she (they) is here by 8:20 am, so as not to miss important information. The school day ends at 2:20 pm.


Please note that QEES is a nut-free school. Please do not include nuts (including peanut butter) in lunch boxes. Please ensure that students who may have contact with nuts and/or peanut butter at home before school wash carefully to remove any trace or scent of nuts/peanut butter.


Dropping off students

Please note that students who arrive before 8:10 a.m. are not supervised outdoors. Please drop off students along the north side of the school (the primary entrance doors). Please do not drive students to the elementary entrance doors (by the brick steps). School buses need easy and quick access to their parking spots.


All doors, except the main door, will be locked throughout the school day. Visitors are required to sign in at the office. The office is open from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
