LEBANON, Tenn. - All schools in the Lebanon Special School District closed Friday due to a bomb threat.
Police confirmed the closings Friday morning on social media, saying they are in route to investigate the threat.
Officials said the principal for Winfree Bryant Middle School received an email containing a bomb threat around 6 a.m.
Lots of officers on scene at Winfree Harvey Middle School. They say the email threat came into the main district, but ended up in an inbox for this school which is why their focus is here.

Since it was unclear if the threat was made against a specific school, officials decided to close the entire district.
Buses were turned around and students were dropped off at their homes.
Police set up a mobile command center at Winfree Bryant Middle and conducted a sweep of the school.
