Sa-Hali Secondary School In Kamloops is suspending all weekend activities to allow RCMP to investigate recent threats.

According to a memo posted on the school's website, there was another threat made to the school Friday morning. 

"Threats to the school are taken seriously and take a tremendous amount of resources to investigate and to determine the source of the threat," reads the statement. "It is critically important for parents to stress to their children the consequences of these inappropriate actions regarding such matters in any and all school settings."

At this time, it's unclear what kind of threat was made this time. The incident follows five others similar in nature.

Earlier today, there was a threat painted on Dallas Elementary, but classes went on as scheduled.

Thursday, a male youth was arrested after he allegedly made a threat on Snapchat against Kamloops Christian School.

On Sept. 18, graffiti reading "there is a bomb" was painted on Sa-Hali Secondary. Police determined the threat was unfounded.

On Sept. 13, graffiti stating "find the bomb" was sprayed on Valleyview Secondary. That threat turned out to be not credible.

And, on Sept. 10, a teen's "play on words" on Snapchat was taken as a threat against Sa-Hali Secondary.
