Big Foot High School responded to a threat earlier today that was made to the safety and well-being of the students and staff at the high school. The message that Walworth School received from Big Foot Administration was that they did not believe the threat was credible in any way. However, to ensure everyone's safety, they closed Big Foot High School at 12:30 pm today.
Walworth School did not experience any threatening messages and this incident was isolated to the High School. As a precaution, however, Walworth administration and Walworth police completed a check on the building for any signs of a safety threat. Seeing and hearing none, we felt confident to keep school open. As a precaution, the 5th grade field trip to the Big Foot High School to see the Chicago Lyric Opera perform was cancelled. We are hoping to reschedule the performance in the near future.
Anyone with information concerning the incident can message Walworth County Crime Stoppers P3 App or contact Big Foot High School at 262-275-2116
