2 bomb threats disrupt schools


It was an unpleasantly busy day for the Barren County school district Tuesday, as a bomb threat at the middle school was followed almost immediately by a bomb threat at the high school.

The first bomb threat was found about 11:15 a.m. on a stall door inside a girls’ restroom on the first floor of Barren County Middle School. The message, which included a crude drawing of a bomb, BCMS, a time and the explanatory words “bomb threat,” was found by a student and reported to school principal Lori Downs.

Downs immediately notified the district’s central office and local law enforcement, and students were evacuated to Barren County High School and Trojan Academy, Superintendent Bo Matthews said.

“It was within minutes that the word came to the district from Principal Lori Downs,” Matthews said.

The Glasgow Police Department, Barren County Sheriff’s Office, emergency management officials and school district officials responded to the scene and began a search of the building.
