SHIOCTON, WI (WTAQ) - Officials in Shiocton are looking into an alleged hit list that was found last week at the high school.
FOX 11 reports that a parent of a Shiocton High School student says the list contained the names of 65 students and teachers.
Village Police Chief Christine Brownson wouldn't comment to WTAQ about the investigation, but told FOX 11 that the students involved in creating the list indicated that they were names of people, "they did not like."
The list was discovered Monday last week. Shiocton District Administrator Nichole Schweitzer tells WTAQ they're still sorting it out.
"We've continued that investigation, taking appropriate precautions and necessary steps to ensure student and staff safety," Schweitzer says. "We certainly have taken this situation seriously and consequences that have been earned have been given out so that everyone is safe."
District leaders tell say they understand parents' frustrations, and have promised to notify parents as soon as they have answers. Meanwhile, they say parents should have no cause for concern.
"I would tell you that if my child attended school here today, she would be here. She would've been here last week and every week before that, and she would be here tomorrow and every day after that," Schweitzer says. "If we truly felt that any one person or more persons were in imminent danger, we would not ask them to come into school."
Schweitzer adds that this does appear to be an isolated incident, and no other implied threat has been made.
