GRAFTON, Wis. (AP) -

Two high schools in southeastern Wisconsin have been evacuated, one because of a bomb threat and the other because of a suspicious device or substance.

The Grafton School District says high students were sent to a local church while the school was searched. The Milwaukee County bomb squad was called.

Racine Park High School students were temporarily evacuated to the field house after a suspicious device or substance was found in the school. Authorities checked the building and allowed students to return about a-half hour later.
