Police investigate 'suspicious message' at Whitewater High School

Posted: Updated:

WHITEWATER (WKOW) -- Whitewater High School was placed on temporary lockdown Monday after administrators were notified of that they described as a "suspicous message."

The school was placed on Hold/Lock and then evacuated about 10 a.m. during the search, according to a Whitewater Police Department news release.

The high school was evacuated and police performed a search of the building. No suspicious devices were found. Students not picked up by parents were returned to the school and classes resumed as normal. All after-school activities will continue as scheduled.

During the Hold/Lock, all other buildings within the Whitewater Unified School District were placed on heightened awareness and all students were kept indoors for recess as a precautionary measure.

The school district is posting updates to its website HERE.
