For the second day in a row, Greene County schools are dealing with a bomb threat.
That has parents worried about the safety of their children.
Bomb threats forced Greene County schools to evacuate three times in 10 days in November.
First, on November 15 a bomb threat was written on a bathroom wall at the middle school.
A week later a new threat was found after school hours at William Monroe high school.
A third one was found at the high school that Monday.
Then it was quiet for a while.
But a bomb threat Wednesday and a bomb threat Thursday evacuated the high school.
Of course, parents are concerned about safety and the disruption to class work.
Erin Ramsey has a son at William Monroe High School.
"It just seems to be a very dangerous situation we do have to be worried with the number of people that are crazy in this world. We have to be concerned about what is going on and if something is going to happen to our kids."
The Greene sheriff's office is taking this very seriously.
They say it’s an ongoing investigation and are hoping that someone will come forward with information that leads to an arrest.
They are offering a reward of up to $1600 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person responsible.
Greene county assistant superintendent Dr. Seth Muraskin says while they do not want to have to disrupt class, the safety of the students always has to come first.
The school has a safety plan for evacuation.
School administrators and the school board collaborate on a way to make up the lost class time.
