The district said they believe the author is a “copycat” to previous incidents at the high school and at Byron and Kasson-Mantorville in the past two weeks.

On April 24, a note was found written on a Hayfield High School wall saying, “Everyone will die on 4-25.”

Students are allowed to stay home from school today and Friday with parental permission.

The district is offering a $500 reward to the information leading to the arrest and conviction of those responsible, according to the Web site.
