Parent Communication December 18, 2012

Re:  Rumor/Threat Arrowhead High School

To Arrowhead Parents and Staff:

On December 18th,  the Arrowhead administration became aware of a rumor that had surfaced regarding a possible threat that would occur on Friday, December 21, 2012 at Arrowhead High School.  School officials and the Waukesha Sheriff’s Department have investigated the matter and have determined there is no indication that this is a credible threat.  We have 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 a precaution, we will take additional security measures towards ensuring the safety of our students and staff.

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.

The District and the Sheriff’s Department are taking all necessary steps to ensure students and staff members are safe.   The District wanted the parents and staff to be aware of this situation in a timely manner, and we will share any additional information as is appropriate. 

School will be open and the learning opportunities for students will proceed as normal.   Should parents have any concerns about your daughter or son attending school, parents have the right to excuse your child.
