JELLICO, Tenn. (WVLT) -- Students at Jellico Elementary School have been evacuated following a bomb threat at the school.
In a statement, Chief Deputy Aaron Evans says a "written non-specific threat" was found in a student restroom.
Although several written threats have led to evacuations at the high school, this is the first at the elementary school.
"While we don’t perceive the threat seriously a joint decision has been made by Campbell County School Administrators and the Sheriff’s Office to quickly evacuate the students to their safe haven, use our explosives detection K-9 to sweep the school, hopefully identify the perpetrating nuisance student and resume normal day to day operations as quickly as possible," Evans says in a statement.
