Officials Investigate Second School Threat

Lincoln County School District

Lincoln County School officials are investigating after they say another threatening message was discovered at one of the district's schools.

In a statement released by the district, officials say the message "Kill everybody 11-5-15" was found Wednesday afternoon by Lincoln County Middle School principal Debbie Sims.  It was discovered in the girls' downstairs lobby restroom of the middle school.

School officials say they began working with law enforcement immediately to investigate the incident and have decided to keep schools open Thursday.  There will be an increased police presence at the middle school throughout the day to ensure the protection of the students and staff.

On Monday, Lincoln County Schools were canceled after a graffiti threat at Crab Orchard Elementary School was found over the weekend.
