Students at Wolfe County Schools did not have classes today after a bomb threat was made early this morning.

School officials say the call came in a few minutes before 6am, and they decided to go ahead and call off school just to be safe. So they called in multiple emergency service agencies as well as state police to investigate the threat.

State police along with a bomb sniffing dog searched all 5 schools as well as the county school buses.

“You can't take a threat lightly, you have to act on it. We're going to provide security throughout the night at our buildings and we will have school in Wolfe County tomorrow,” says Robert Scott Creech, Wolfe County Schools Administrator.

Officials with state police say the person who made the call faces charges of terroristic threatening and up to 12 months in jail.

    I agree with the closing school to get this matter figured out. I dont know how many or how often this school has been threatened this year alone. But what i do know is Yesturday in London a South Middle they did to also receive a bomb threat and the kids were evuacated to the high school for a SHORT period of time.. what gets me is nothing is ever said about these schools now this makes atleast 10 times total between the high and middle school that has been threatened.. their still going to school.. GET IT TOGETHER LAUREL COUNTY.. No news nothing letting people around here that we are tired of this stuff
