ITHSA Closed 2/1/18 | Kenosha Unified School District

ITHSA Closed 2/1/18

Due to an ongoing investigation regarding a threat made against Indian Trail High School and Academy, school will not be in session today, Thursday, Feb. 1, 2018. No staff or students should attend. Because this is an isolated incident, this only applies to Indian Trail. We appreciate everyone’s understanding and support as we continue to work with the Kenosha Police Department to find the source of the threat and ensure the safety of all students and staff. A decision regarding Friday, Feb. 2, will be made as soon as possible, but no later than 5 a.m. tomorrow pending the outcome of the investigation.

It is imperative that parents and guardians are aware of a state statute enacted in April 2016 that creates the crime of terrorist threats. Act 311 generally states that any individual who makes real or false claims regarding shootings, bomb threats or to cause any other bodily harm to others is guilty of a Class I felony. Since its enactment, local law enforcement has started charging individuals, including students, in line with Act 311 if they have made threats against our schools. Making threats is not a joking matter and individuals may face fines and/or imprisonment for their actions, whether intentional or not.
