Sturgeon Bay Assistant Police Chief Dan Brinkman and Sturgeon Bay Principal Keith Nerby say that Friday’s situation involving a student and an alleged “hit list” you heard about over the weekend was executed by the school district and the police department flawlessly.
On Friday, a faculty member discovered a list of names written by one of its students possibly suggesting violence towards a group of classmates. After bringing the list to School Resource Officer Derek Jennerjohn and Nerby, other police officers arrived at the school at approximately 12 p.m. for a disorderly conduct call with the student who had been brought to the office.
Nerby says the events that occurred after the sticky note was found went as planned.
Brinkman says the situation was handled just the way it should have been from his perspective.
The student has been suspended and will not be returning to school for the rest of this year. Students and their families were notified at the end of the school day, with Principal Nerby applauding law enforcement and faculty members and encouraging all to say something if they see something suspicious.
