The message was merely a test for the system that read “Presidential Alert: THIS IS A TEST of the National Wireless Emergency Alert System. No action is needed.” While many may believe the alert is controlled by President Donald Trump himself, the alert is actually managed by a Federal Emergency Management Agency.

Many WHHS students were puzzled at the alert on the screen and were left uninformed about the event that transpired at the end of the school day.
