“Copycat” threat discovered at Nathan Hale H.S. in West Allis
WEST ALLIS (WITI) — West Allis police are investigating a “copycat” threat at Nathan Hale High School on Wednesday, January 7th.
According to a spokesman from the West Allis-West Milwaukee School District, the threat was discovered at Hale H.S. around 10 a.m. The school administration then moved the student body to the gym while police conducted a sweep of the school.
Officials say once police give the “all clear,” classes will resume.
School will remain in session — and dismissal is expected to be at the regularly scheduled time.
A bomb threat was found on a bathroom wall at the high school on Tuesday, January 6th. West Allis police were dispatched to the school around 12:30 p.m. Students were evacuated from the school — and later dismissed early. No explosives were ever found in the building.
Anyone with information related to either of these threats is urged to call West Allis police at 414-302-8000.
