On Tuesday morning a student at Coffee County High School found a threatening note and notified school administration. Dr. Ladonna McFall, Director of Coffee County Schools, said, “We had someone write on a wall ‘threatening the building.’” Students were evacuated just after 11am from the school via a fire drill.
Manchester Police and the Coffee County Sheriff’s Department searched the building as a precaution.
Authorities gave the building the “all clear” around 12:30pm and students were allowed back in the building and returned to their classroom.
An investigation into who left the note is ongoing.
Shelbyville Central High School was the victim of a bomb threat Tuesday morning — one of several apparent copy-cat incidents that have occurred at schools in Middle Tennessee over the past week.
Shelbyville school administrators say that a message was left on a girl’s restroom wall that said a bomb was planted in a backpack in the building. No device was found at the Bedford County school.
