Student Wearing Star Wars Costume Triggers School Evacuation


By Rob Shimshock

A parent called the police upon seeing a student wearing a Star Wars costume walk into a high school Thursday.

The student, who attends Ashwaubenon High School in Wisconsin, presumably wore a Stormtrooper mask and costume to celebrate May 4th, a day Star Wars fans commonly refer to as Star Wars day, according to

The customary greeting of the holiday is “may the fourth be with you,” a play on the much repeated line from the movies “may the force be with you.”

“There was no legitimate threat at AHS today,” reported Ashwaugenon School District on its Facebook page. “It was a misunderstanding where a student wore a Star Wars costume for May the Fourth Be With You day.”

“There was no intent of a threat, but the student will be held accountable.”

Ashwaubenon Public Safety had evacuated the high school upon receiving the parent’s report. Parkview Middle School and a local community center, where students were taking an AP exam, were put on lockdown.

The Daily Caller News Foundation reached out to Ashwaugenon’s superintendent to inquire how the student will be “held accountable,” but received no comment in time for publication.
