GALLATIN, Tenn.- Officials from Sumner County Schools said that classes at RT Fisher School and Gallatin High School will resume normally after being dismissed early Wednesday due to a bomb threat.
Jeremy Johnson with Sumner County Schools said that both schools were cleared by Tennessee Highway Patrol officers and the bomb threat was unfounded. Classes will resume on Thursday.
On Wednesday, school was dismissed early for students at RT Fisher School and Gallatin High School after a note was found balled up under a desk at RT Fisher School in Gallatin saying there was a bomb at the school and at Gallatin High School.
Both schools were evacuated, and students from Gallatin High were sent to nearby Rucker Stewart Middle School. Students were dismissed around 2:45 p.m. as the investigation continued past the normal dismissal time.
Bomb detections units as well as THP bomb sniffing dogs were brought in to search both schools. Officials said no devices were found inside the schools.
