Students and staff at Clintonville High School had an unexpected break in their day Tuesday. Clintonville Police Chief Terry Lorge says office staff at the school received a telephoned bomb threat at about 8:30 this morning, resulting in evacuation. Lorge says that went off smoothly: the building was competely emptied in about ten minutes.
Lorge says a couple of bomb sniffing dogs from the Outagamie County Sheriff's Department were brought in to sweep the school. Firefighters checked the buildings roof, and police officers made a visual inspection before students and staff were allowed back inside after about three hours. Lorge says they'll be questioning persons of interest in connection with the incident.
