LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- More school threats put two local school districts on alert again today.

A note scribbled on a desk Wednesday at Louisville Male High School threatened an incident today. JCPS says it doesn't believe the threat is credible, but will have a K-9 unit sweep the building, and officers will be visible.

And in Bullitt County, a threatening note was discovered at Bernheim Middle School. It said the school would blow up on Friday. 

"We take a hoax as seriously as we take a true threat," said Bonnie Hackbarth. "We have to. Safety is our highest priority. So if you are going to think about making a threat, I encourage you to stop."

"At the end of the day, the world in which we live in...things can happen anywhere and this is why faith is so important," said Rev. Tim Findley, Jr., a Male High School parent. "So, you think about it and then you say, 'you know, you're going to school.'"
