GREENVILLE, Ky. (1/15/13) – Parents throughout the Greenville area have been wondering exactly what happened at the Greenville Elementary school today as students were evacuated for unrevealed reasons. Muhlenberg County School Superintendent Dale Todd has officially verified that Greenville Elementary School was temporarily evacuated today after a “Suspicious Phone Call” was received.
“The school did receive a call,” said Todd, “and it was hard to tell what was actually said, but there was no bomb threat.”
The school decided to lean towards caution and held a fire drill to move students out of the building, Todd told reporters. “Then the Muhlenberg County Sheriff’s Department, school resource officers and the Greenville Police Department did a quick scan of the building. Nothing suspicious was found and the students were allowed back into the school,” said Todd.
Todd stated that the message was inaudible and that you could not understand what exactly was said. The school does have caller identification.
Todd stated that the case has been turned over to Greenville Police officials for further investigation.
