Just days after a bomb threat was written on a bathroom stall at Memorial High School, another threat was found at Chippewa Falls high school. But this time in four different places.
According to the Chippewa Falls Area Unified School District, a written threat was found on a girl’s bathroom stall around 8:45 this morning.
As the building was searched, three more threats were found. Another in the boy’s bathroom and two threats written on paper left in both bathrooms. The threats said there were bombs and guns around the building and if anyone left the school, they would be harmed.
The school was put on a hold around 9:30, meaning students could not leave the classroom. Lunch was brought to them and they were escorted to the restrooms as the grounds were searched.
"Our investigation leads us to believe that these threats were as a result of the incident at Memorial High School. We feel that they're connected based on the investigation."
"There's no indication that the suspects from that incident and these suspects are in any way related, but it was inspired by that threat. We believe we've identified the two-primary people and it's unlikely, although possible, there may be other people involved but we'll find that out as we go."
The district says the hold was lifted at the end of the school day so students could attend their last class. All schools ended at their normal time today.
School is scheduled as normal for tomorrow.
