LLOYDMINSTER, Alta. - Schools in the city of Lloydminster, on the Alberta-Saskatchewan boundary, were in a form of lockdown Wednesday because a potentially violent high-risk sex offender was on the loose.
Michael Diachuk, director of education with the Lloydminster Public School Division, said all doors were locked, there was extra supervision and students were kept inside following a warning from the RCMP.
"It's still a lockdown in the sense that as soon as all the children are in school, the front door will also be locked," said Diachuk.
