Police siren lights light bar squad car

Vernon County sheriff's deputies will be at Kickapoo Middle/High School the rest of the week after a student allegedly wrote a threatening letter.

The unidentified juvenile has been suspended from school the rest of the school year, and could face charges, the Sheriff's Office said.

"There appears to be no immediate threat of safety for students or staff," said Sheriff John Spears.

The threatening letter was found in a classroom Tuesday afternoon. School district staff called the Sheriff's Office that evening.

Police did not disclose what type of threat was in the letter.
