The Oshkosh Police Department investigated a social media post that has been circulating amongst students.

On Monday (10/25/21) at approximately 08:26 AM, officers from the Oshkosh Police Department became aware of a post indicating a potential threat towards Webster Stanley Middle School.

Detectives immediately began investigating this incident and additional
police officers responded to the school to increase the police presence.
