A threat on social media and rumors about more threats led to a number of parents pulling their kids out of classes at Fond du Lac High School Wednesday. District officials say it began with angry comments made in a lunchroom Tuesday.
District Health and Safety Coordinator Marian Sheridan said there is no danger to students. She said they did increase police presence to make sure students and their parents felt safe.
A Snapchat photo was shared identifying comments related to a “revolution” that was to occur during the lunch hours. That situation was immediately investigated and the students involved were addressed. The student is no longer in school. Sheridan said that inappropriate statement made on social media spread and fueled rumors about more threats. and that it’s unfortunate that information was put out there that made people frightened.
