Meeting Addresses Threats, Communication

Parents in Chippewa falls continue to be upset that they weren’t told about a school threat last fall.

Dozens of parents turned-out at last night’s school board meeting to demand answers. They want to know what no one told them about a student who, in October of last year, was allegedly looking-up how to make bombs and had what authorities have called a journal with specific threats. Parents didn’t find out about the threat until earlier this month.

Many parents last night said they want more answers, not just about this threat, but about all other threats as well. Chippewa Falls school leaders say they didn’t notify parents because of certain privacy laws, and because the police were already handling the case.
