Student arrested for threat at Greendale High School

Sept. 25, 2012

Greendale - A Greendale High School student was arrested and charged today for a threat that was found in the school's boy's restroom Sept. 20.

The threat indicated that something would happen in the ensuing three days. Nothing happened, but a joint investigation by the Greendale Police Department and the school district resulted in the arrest.

In a prepared statement, the district said the student will face "usual and customary discipline" up to and including expulsion. The student will not be allowed to return to the school until the situation is resolved.

"It is important to emphasize that no students at Greendale High School were in any imminent danger," Superintendent John Tharp said.
