  • Kiel Middle School received the threat during school hours, as cops said they were investigating ‘threatening communications’ toward district staff
  • The students, all aged 13, were all hit with a formal complaint earlier this month, for referring to the unnamed student as ‘she’ or ‘her,’ rather than ‘they’ or ‘them’

A bomb threat closed all schools in a Wisconsin school district Monday, days after three middle schoolers found themselves under investigation for refusing to address their non-binary classmate by their preferred pronouns.

Kiel Middle School received the threat during school hours, at roughly 12:45 pm, shortly after police announced they were working to investigate ‘threatening communications’ toward district staff regarding the sexual harassment probe.

The students, all aged 13 and all enrolled at Kiel Middle, were all hit with a formal complaint earlier this month, for referring to the unnamed student as ‘she’ or ‘her,’ rather than ‘they’ or ‘them.’

One of the children, Braden Rabidoux, spoke out about the investigation in an interview with Fox News last week, airing fears that he may not get into college because of the sexual harassment charges leveled against him.

He along with his two classmates – whom have not been named – argue that the First Amendment allows them to refer to their nonbinary classmate with whatever pronouns they wish.

The incident has since gained traction and has garnered national news coverage, thrusting the small Kiel Area School District – comprised of three public schools and approximately 1,500 students – into the spotlight.

Directly before Monday’s threat, which saw all three schools evacuated, City of Kiel Police Chief Dave Funkhouser revealed the district had been receiving a stream of ‘extremely vulgar, hateful, and disturbing’ threats since the case went public.

Funkhouser’s announcement included the revelation that extra patrols would be deployed around the three school’s buildings as a precautionary measure due to the concerning communications.

‘Our actions are in response to the hateful comments expressed to the staff of the schools, and we proactively increased our presence in and around district buildings and grounds,’ the chief said Monday morning of the increased police presence.
