Turkey Foot Middle School Evacuated

Turkey Foot Middle School in Edgewood was evacuated Tuesday afternoon but there was no fire.

Parents became concerned as the evacuation timed with a phone call alerting them that a possible threat had been made on social media.

The evacuation and the reported threat were not related.

Kenton County School District spokesperson Jessica Dykes told The River City News ​that there was a mechanical malfunction in the school prompting the evacuation.

There was a social media post but there was no threat to students, she said, and no weapons were on campus.
