MILWAUKEE - Students will be headed back to school at Nicolet High School Thursday morning, after a chaotic day on Wednesday.

Administrators canceled classes after they felt a bomb threat was serious enough to evacuate the school. Glendale Police arrested a 16-year-old student who they say is responsible for the prank.

The threat forced classes to be canceled before noon. Students were shuffled to Glen Hills Middle School where some frantic parents picked up their kids.

All activities at the school were canceled, and although school is back in session Thursday, and the superintendent says the evacuation process was a success.

“At some point I'll probably be beyond frustrated and somewhat angry as I process this,” said Superintendent Robert Kobylski. “I'm pleased at this point that our students are safe.”

Students will be returning to classes, and will be able to retrieve belongings they left behind on Wednesday.
