St. Theresa Catholic School reopened Friday after being closed for two days in the aftermath of the Strathcona County parkade explosions.
The Sherwood Park school was closed to staff and students on Wednesday and Thursday after two explosions shook the county’s community centre parkade on Tuesday night.
Police have identified 21-year-old Kane Kosolowski as the sole suspect in the incident. Kosolowski was taken to hospital after being found severely injured in a vehicle in the parkade but later died of his injuries. RCMP reported Thursday that an autopsy determined the cause of death to be a gunshot wound. Police aren’t searching for any other suspects.
The Elk Island Catholic Schools (EICS) Central Learning Services building also reopened Friday.
EICS said in a statement on Thursday that the school would have counsellors and school psychologists available onsite as students returned to class. Any events planned to take place at the school over the weekend remain cancelled.
RCMP say that Tuesday's incident was “a singular event” and that there was no known threat to any schools in the area. Police are continuing to investigate the motive for the crime.
Salisbury Composite High School also reopened Friday. County hall is expected to open late next week. The county reports that further assessment of the community centre will be needed before a timeframe for reopening can be given.
