'All clear' issued after students at Clarksville H.S. temporarily evacuated
The school released a statement about the incident a short time ago.
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Students at Clarksville High School were evacuated and temporarily relocated after school officials say the school received a "concerning message" Friday.
Since then, the "all clear" notice has been issued.
"The Clarksville Police Department and Clarksville Fire Department issued an 'all clear' and determined the threat was unfounded after a thorough search of school grounds," a representative of the school said in a written statement. "After the 'all clear,' students and staff returned to the premises and followed the regular schedule."
School officials said that at 11:15 a.m., they were made aware of a concerning message within Clarksville High School, and as a result, the students were temporarily moved to an adjacent school building.
The Clarksville Police Department has taken over the investigation.
It's the second such incident at the school in as many weeks.
"The individual responsible for the threat on March 3 is being processed with criminal charges and recommended expulsion and the person responsible for today’s events will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law," the statement continues. "Clarksville Community Schools takes the security and safety of our students and staff very seriously and these actions are not tolerated."
