LEBANON, Tenn. (WSMV) - A high school in Wilson County was put on lockdown Monday morning for a potential bomb threat made to the school, a spokesperson for the school district confirmed.

All Wilson Central High School teachers and students were told at about 9 a.m. to stay in their respective classrooms while the Wilson County Sheriff’s Office investigated two bomb threats called in, one directly to the high school and the other to WCSO dispatch.

Students were later evacuated to the indoor athletic facility near the football field while law enforcement conducted a necessary sweep of the campus.

Officials later lifted the lockdown and classes resumed as normal after investigators gave the “all-clear.”
