Threats close Franklin schools

Franklin Community Schools are closed because of a threat received yesterday.

According to our news gathering partners at Metro Networks, Franklin Superintendent David Clendening says he made the decision after talking with the Franklin Police Department.

The call caused a lockdown at Franklin High School yesterday and the canceling of after-school activities.

This followed threats found Monday and Wednesday in a bathroom stall.


School officials say students will return to school on Jan. 5.
