Sheriff deputies called to Bloomfield Middle for alleged threat by student


Friday, Feb. 16, 2018 — The Nelson County Sheriff’s Office was called about 10:30 Friday morning to Bloomfield Middle School for a report of a student who had made unspecified threats. Two deputies later escorted two female studentsĀ  from the school. They were transported by officers from the school to the sheriff’s office in Bardstown.

According to a district spokesman, Bloomfield Middle School Principal Rodney Morgeson was sending letters home to parents regarding the incident, which did not apparently involve a credible threat to the school. Students and staff were safe at the school and there was no cause for alarm.

Through a spokesman, Interim Superintendent Tom Brown reiterated that providing for the safety and security of the district’s school community is paramount, and that all incidents are being taken seriously and will be investigated.

Editor’s note: An earlier version of this story incorrectly listed the age of the students.
