    UPDATE: A lockout at Harpeth High is still ongoing while a lockout at Harpeth Middle has been lifted.

    A potential threat to the schools is being investigated.

    "All students in the south cluster schools are safe and in no immediate danger," Communications Director Tim Adkins said.


    Two Chetham County Schools are on a lockout due to a potential threat.

    The Cheatham County Sheriff’s Office and Cheatham County School District placed Harpeth High School and Harpeth Middle School on a lockout Thursday.

    A potential threat that prompted the lockout is being investigated. A lockout means students and staff go about their daily routine, but no one is allowed in the building.

    "The Cheatham County School District’s first priority is the safety and well-being of our students," Communications Director Tim Adkins said. All students are safe and there is no immediate danger at the schools."

    Law enforcement are on scene at both schools as a precaution.
