WASHINGTON COUNTY, Tenn. (WJHL) – A Washington County, Tennessee school was evacuated Thursday after a reported bomb threat.

According to a release from the Washington County Sheriff’s Office (WCSO), deputies were called to Sulphur Springs School Thursday afternoon after a school resource officer was alerted to a threat on a bathroom wall.

The sheriff’s office reports that out of an abundance of caution, an evacuation took place and the school was searched.

“We evacuated the building and upon information provided to us from the sheriff’s department, we decided it was in our best interest for the safety of the students and the staff at the building to evacuate the campus,” said Jarrod Adams, Chief Operations Officer for Washington County Schools. “And Sulphur Springs Methodist Church is our designated reunification spot for our evacuation at Sulphur Springs, so the church sprung into action, did a great job. So we brought the kids over here.”

Parents were able to reunite with their children at Sulphur Springs Methodist Church.

The sheriff’s office reports the investigation into the threat found it was not viable, and no devices were found.

Adams told News Channel 11 that parents were notified of the situation in stages through the BrightArrow app.

“The parents were made aware that initially that we were evacuating the school and then a second email was sent out where they were notified that we have evacuated the campus and that reunification would begin here at Sulphur Springs United Methodist Church,” said Adams.

Sulphur Springs School will remain open until 6 p.m. Thursday so students can recover belongings after the disrupted school day.
