Central High School evacuated due to bomb threat

Students let back in the school around 1 p.m.

LA CROSSE, Wis. - All students at Central High School have been evacuated due to a reported bomb threat around 12:30 p.m. on Tuesday, according to the School District of La Crosse.

Central High School officials say they found a note with a bomb threat on it on campus.

"In light of yesterday's incidents in Boston and our ongoing priority of student and staff safety, the threat was taken extremely seriously," said Sue Peterson, School District of La Crosse's community outreach coordinator.

Students were evacuated to the back of Central High School's football field.

Peterson said the La Crosse Police K-9 Unit did a full sweep of the building and did not find anything suspicious. After police confirmed the building was safe and secure, students and staff were let back in the building and the school's normal scheduled continued.
