TONY, Wis. (WEAU) -- A student was detained after a threat at Flambeau School District.
It happened Thursday morning.
In a letter sent to parents, District Administrator Erica Schely said when they were notified of the threat they took action to ensure safety of the students. The student who made the threat never entered school property Thursday morning, and sheriff’s deputies successfully detained the student.
The district is also making some changes to school policy. Upon a recommendation by the sheriff’s department, the district says liquids will no longer be able to be brought to school by students in grades 6-12 and verification at the front door will become more stringent.
The district says they want parents to use this incident as an opportunity to talk to children about what to do in a situation where they may feel uncomfortable or unsafe.
