BRANDENBURG, KY (WAVE) – Students and staff were evacuated from Meade County High School after a threat was made Tuesday.
The Meade County Sheriff says a custodian found a note inside the high school restroom about a bomb threat.
Parents said this is the second straight day a bomb threat has been made against the school.
"The note yesterday said there was knowledge of a bomb," said Sheriff Butch Kerrick. "Today there was a threat ear marked that it was going to explode at a particular time on today's date."
The sheriff said Tuesdays note also listed names and that is why it was taken seriously.
Students were evacuated to the school's football field while the building was searched. Kentucky State Police and Louisville Metro Police helped search the scene with bomb sniffing dogs on the school grounds, along with local law enforcement personnel. Luckily, nothing was found.
Upon hearing the news, many parents rushed to the school to pick up their kids. The parents were directed to the nearby school bus depot to get their children.
"It's ridiculous and I'm upset about it," said parent Pamela Lewis.
"Parents are waiting," said parent Beth Baker. "If there was a true tragedy, totally dysfunctional totally dysfunctional."
The sheriff said the notes from Monday and Tuesday had different handwriting. Whoever is behind the notes could face felony charges.
The FBI is also getting involved.
School will resume Wednesday and on Thursday students will be on winter break.
