BRILLION - Brillion High School was under a hold for just over an hour this morning (Wednesday, September 1) "in regard to a report of a possible dangerous weapon on school grounds."
That is quoted from an e-mail sent to parents after the incident was over.
The e-mail from BHS principal Elissa Hoffman said the school went into a "hold" status at about 10:25 a.m.
"During a hold, teachers are instructed to close their classroom doors and continue with their instruction," she wrote. "Any students in a hallway at that time are removed to the nearest supervised area during the drill."
Hoffman said the hold allowed the school, with assistance from the Brillion Police Department, to investigate a report that a possible dangerous weapon was on school grounds.
"The situation was promptly addresses and so students or staff were in danger at any time," Hoffman wrote.
The hold ended at approximately 11:30 a.m., and movements within the school resumed per normal schedules.
