Threat at Arrowhead means tighter security

Dec. 19, 2012

Arrowhead High School is planning additional security measures after a rumor surfaced about a potential threat at the school on Friday.

According to a letter sent to parents, administrators became aware of the rumor on Dec. 18. School officials and the Waukesha Sheriff’s Department have investigated and have determined there is no indication that this is a credible threat. The district has also been in contact with a neighboring school district, which is dealing with a similar rumor/threat to occur on the same day.

The Waukesha Sheriff’s Department and the Hartland Police Department have been involved in reviewing the matter.

As we don’t know the source of the rumor, please take the opportunity to discuss this concern with your child. If your child has reliable information, he/she should report it directly to the school’s administration or Deputy Pete Freyer, school resource officer.


School will be open, the letter noted.
