Charmaine Panegyuk, a student at Cambridge Bay's Kiilinik high school, arrives to find her school closed Sept. 22. Schools across Nunavut were evacuated and closed Sept. 22 after Nunavut RCMP received threats that bombs have been placed in the schools. The schools will reopen once they are confirmed to be safe, police said Sept. 22.

A later news release from the RCMP confined the threat
