Franklin-Simpson High School received its second threat in a week's time on Oct. 2.

Franklin Police detectives, a school resource officer and staff at the high school obtained a confession on Oct. 3, after conducting interviews from a juvenile student who was responsible for a threat written on a bathroom stall.

Police were notified on Oct. 2 of a threat to students that indicated violence would occur Oct. 4.

According to police, the juvenile has been charged with second degree terroristic threatening, which is a Class D Felony.

While police felt there was no credible threat to students, the department assigned extra officers on location at Simpson County Schools last Friday.

"We need parents and guardians to continue to notify school officials if they hear of anything of this nature," Simpson County Schools Superintendent Tim Schlosser said in a prepared statement. "Student safety is of the utmost importance to everyone in Simpson County Schools. We will continue to work to educate our students on the seriousness of making these type comments and or threats that continue to disrupt the learning environment in our schools."

The incident follows a threat made at the school on Sept. 25, when a juvenile was charged with second-degree terroristic threatening.
