A handwritten threat was found inside Pewaukee High School last Thursday that said there would be a school shooting on October 2nd.

Classes resumed on Monday, October 5th with one major difference. Students had to go through metal detectors — an added safety precaution after last week’s threat.

Metal detectors were also in use on Saturday, as students attended the rescheduled homecoming football game.
