Lexington City Schools went under a ‘soft lock down’ from 9:00 a.m. until 10:00 a.m. Thursday morning, August 23rd. Director of Schools, Cindy Olive, said that “Threats had been made in Carroll County for our area, and I called the Lexington Chief of Police, and we authorized a soft lock down as a precautionary measure.”  “Everything is well and good,” she said, and the lockdown was lifted at 10:00 a.m. Olive said that the incident is being taken seriously, and that the threats are being investigated by the Lexington Police Department and the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation.
