CBS affiliate WFRV reports that students were evacuated from the school and transported to the middle school and a nearby church.

A student wearing a Star Wars mask and costume prompted an evacuation at Ashwaubenon High School in Ashwaubenon, Wisconsin Thursday morning.

"The student was wearing a Darth Vader outfit with a plastic mask and was carrying a bag with him, and that outfit looked like he might be wearing a bulletproof vest or a flak jacket", an unidentified police officer told reporters at the scene.

After Public Safety did a sweep of the high school, authorities determined that "there was no threat".

What could be more flawless for the unofficial Star Wars holiday, May 4th (made popular by the phrase, "May the 4th be with you), then discovering a man legally named Darthvader works at Saint Francis Hospital-Bartlett?"

A post on the Ashwaubenon School District Facebook page added, "The situation has been resolved - there was no threat".

The private Ihlas news agency IHA reported the convoy was heading to southeastern Sanliurfa province from Kilis in the west. Othman further said that three United States army units will be deployed on the border area to prevent further attacks.

For "Star Wars" fans, May 4 is a day of celebration, with this year being even more special as 2017 marks the 40th anniversary of the franchise.

After the story gained attention online, social media users criticized the overly cautious parent.

Williamson hasn't seen any of the "Star Wars" movies since "Return of the Jedi" in 1983.

Others simply found it amusing that the parent didn't seem to recognize the popular character.

Nerd culture may be pretty mainstream these days, but the geeks will never really be in charge so long as people continue to mistake a kid dressed like Darth Vader for some kind of weirdo. "Now that's just sad!"

Millions of people across the globe are celebrating Star Wars day today, also known as May the Fourth.
