Discovery of note in bathroom prompts search of building by MPD dog unit

Authorities are continuing to investigate a bomb scare that forced the evacuation of Grafton High School on Tuesday.

Grafton police and the Milwaukee Bomb Squad responded to the school at about 7:45 a.m. after school officials making a routine security check of the building discovered a message in a first-floor restroom stating a bomb would be detonated at 12:33 p.m.

Police and school officials quickly decided to evacuate the building, with more than 780 students and 80 staff members sent to St. Joseph’s Catholic Church less than two blocks away. Using its K-9 dog unit and technicians, the bomb squad searched both floors of the school and found no suspicious devices, police said.

Students and staff, who walked to the church, returned to the school at about 10:30 a.m. and resumed classes.
