BLACK RIVER FALLS — Law enforcement officials will sweep the high school and middle school in Black River Falls for weapons and limit entry before classes today because of a threat found Wednesday.

Superintendent Shelly Severson said school officials found a note in the boys' bathroom late Wednesday threatening a shooting at the school.

Here's the note posted by the superintendent:

“Hello families, this is Dr. Severson calling to let you know of a serious situation that arose late after school today at the high school. As we are one connected community and District, it felt important to share this message with all families and staff members. I also want everyone aware of our plans moving forward. Late this afternoon a written threat was found inside the boys' bathroom of the high school which stated that someone was going to “shoot “ at BRFHS on May 31.
