On September 27 the Dane County Sheriff’s Office was made aware of Tik Tok video (posted by a Deerfield High School student) containing a threat to the student body. The initial investigation determined there was no credible danger to the students or staff. 

The Sheriff’s Office takes these matters seriously and continues to investigate after the initial call to determine potential charges and/or whether other professional services are needed. The Dane County Sheriff’s Office is actively working with the Deerfield School District to address any safety concerns.
