Beaver Dam Schools to remain closed; third suspect being sought

May 5, 2017 – Beaver Dam, WI – The Beaver Dam Unified School District was closed today after a “security issue” was announced.

Beaver Dam Police and school officials held a press conference late this morning about the threat made that closed schools today.

Officials say at 1:56 a.m. Friday Beaver Dam police were made aware that an assistant principal was sent threatening emails.  School officials say the threat was specific to 5th period and that weapons and explosives were involved.  The threat also mentioned harming students.   Police say that because of the threats involved they had to close all schools.

At this time there are two students being interviewed in the investigation of the threats.  Officials say they are looking for a third student that is said to be out of state in connection to this threat.

Beaver Dam School District parents should be aware that school activities will not continue until the threat is over and the students are safe to come back to school.  Beaver Dam Police are working with police outside of Wisconsin to try to apprehend the third student involved.  Until that student is located and the issue of any threat is cleared, school officials say the school will be closed.
