EJCHS cleared, students return to class

By Staff
JEFFERSON - Authorities cleared Jackson County Comprehensive High School in Jefferson late Thursday morning following another school bomb threat in the county.

An announcement on the school system's Facebook page indicated students returned to class around 11:00 a.m.

As has been the case in a string of bomb threats at schools in the county in recent days, the latest was on a restroom wall. School officials announced Thursday's precautionary evacuation around 9:00 a.m.

All of the threats have turned out to be hoaxes.
