Greene Co. Schools Investigating Bomb Threats

Nov. 26, 2013

School administrators in Greene County are trying to figure out why they've received three bomb threats in about 10 days at two county schools.

Two of the threats have happened at William Monroe High School, the other at Monroe Middle School.

No bombs were found in any of the incidents.

School officials are working with police who are investigating.

"Our school day's been interrupted, evening activities have been interrupted, that includes practices for basketball, or wrestling or you know we had a movie night that had to be cancelled the other night,” said Greene Co. Superintendent Dr. Andrea Whitmarsh. “Yesterday, girls’ basketball couldn't go to a scrimmage because they couldn't get into the building to get their things even though it was an away game. So it's been a huge disruption."

Those found guilty for making the threats not only face consequences from the school district, but making bomb threats is a felony.
