Two middle Tennessee school systems went into lockdown status this morning after multiple Clarksville city employees received threats.
The employees received the threats against the employees, the employees' families and threats against unidentified schools. The vagueness of the threat led Clarksville Police and school officials to place all of their buildings on lockdown as a precautionary matter.
Parents in Clarksville were allowed to check their students out of school without it counting as an absence.
Meanwhile, Cheatham County, Tennessee also went into lockdown status out of an abundance of caution. A statement on the Cheatham County School system website says there was a “stream of email threats that were posed against schools in general” and they were not allowing entry or exit from any of their buildings until police determined it was safe.
