Both high schools in Middleton, Wisconsin, will be closed on Wednesday after “serious and specific” threats were posted on social media, the school district said.
The school district didn’t say what the threats were, but it said they were specific to Clark Street Community School and Middleton High School in Middleton. Elementary and middle schools will be open as scheduled “with an increased police presence,” the district said.
Perry Hibner, a spokesman for the school district, said that the threats were made on Instagram. He said they were working with Instagram to identify the account.
