Students and faculty at Onalaska ISD evacuated the school building Wednesday morning after the school received a bomb threat.
No evidence of any sort of explosives were discovered on campus after a thorough search.
“Everything went fine,” Onalaska Superintendent Anthony Roberts said. “We received an anonymous tip and we followed up on it. The only department we called in was the Onalaska Police Department and they
responded right away. We cleared the school and we had an explosives K-9 unit that also swept the school in addition to the Onalaska Police Department.”
The K-9 unit was transported in from the Montgomery County Fire Marshal’s Office.
“It is one of those difficult ones, because you are always going to respond on the side of caution, no matter how sketchy you think the report might be,” Roberts said. “You hope that it turns out to be a false report.”
Further investigation on who placed the threat will continue.
