Donna Johnson of the Education Ministry says the Northern Light School Division has told parents that classes at the La Loche Community School won't resume for seven to 10 days.

She says the division is prepared to add security to the school, but first wants to discuss details with the community and the RCMP.

Johnson says security could include a school resource officer or Mountie who works to build relationships with students and staff.

RCMP say a suspect shot dead two teens at a home before killing two staff and wounding seven others at the school.

A 17-year-old boy has been charged with first-degree murder and attempted murder.
