LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The Meade County High School was evacuated after two threatening notes were found in two days.
Students were evacuated around 11:15 a.m. and returned to class around 2 p.m. after police searched the buildings. The LMPD brought in two K9 units and Kentucky State Police brought in one K9 to participate in the sweep.
No evidence of explosive materials was found.
The FBI will be joining the investigation after Tuesday's note was found. School officials told us that another note was found on Monday in a rest room, but was vague and did not appear threatening. The second note, found around 8 a.m. Tuesday in a rest room, was much more menacing, claiming that a bomb was set to go off at the school at a specific time.
Students were kept outside in the bleachers of the football field, as police searched the school. Kentucky State Police say they were notified at 9:11 a.m. Tuesday about the note. Police have not said whether the notes were found on school grounds or elsewhere.
About 1,500 students attend the high school, vocational academy and Freshman Academy on campus.
Along with the K9, state troopers sent two hazardous device troopers to the scene, and members of the Louisville Bomb Squad also assisted in the investigation.
The Meade County Emergency Management Director tells WDRB that school district officials notified parents using the reverse 911 system. Most parents chose to pick up their children at the bus garage on High Street. Parents were asked to stay away from the school.
Wednesday is the last day of school before holiday break. The school system expects to operate normally.
