SHOREWOOD — Classes resume Thursday for Shorewood Schools and the district will be offering various methods of support for students.

After a 14-year-old was arrested in connection to Wednesday's anonymous tip, students are heading back to school Thursday. The district has sent out an email to students' parents informing them of the precautions being taken after a student allegedly created a "hit list" and brought a magazine of ammunition to school.

"We understand that it [returning to school] will be an extremely difficult day for many students and staff. We will have our staff and counselors available for extra support, both tomorrow and throughout the upcoming days," said Bryan Davis, Shorewood Schools Superintendent.

The email also stated that teachers may take time during class to address and debrief them on the Shorewood High School situation in a way that is age appropriate.

In addition to support from staff and counselors, Shorewood High School will also see police presence on Thursday.

"While we do not have any reason to believe there is a continued threat, we will have police presence at Shorewood High School for the remainder of the week to help the Shorewood community feel safe," said Davis.

The Shorewood School District is encouraging parents to partner with the district by talking about school safety and coming forward with information with their children.
