Franklin County High School is back to normal after a lock down Wednesday morning.

Principal Sharon Collett says the 50 minute closure came after a reported threat against a student.

"This was strictly a precautionary measure and everyone is safe. Sheriff Melton and the Frankfort Police Department were on the scene to support and protect," says Collett.

Police say the reported threat stems from a fight at the high school basketball District Tournament last week in which a number of teenagers alledgedly attacked another student.

Frankfort Police took 4 Frankfort High School students and one Franklin County student into custody Wednesday morning.

All 5 juveniles are accused of assault.

Police say a juvenile court worker will determine if the teens will remain in custody or be released to their parents as they wait for a court date.

Teachers should get hazardous duty pay. I'm so sick of people not respecting teachers, considering them "overpaid babysitters", and attacking their pay and retirement. I wouldn't do it for $200,000 a year, much less a lousy $40k that most of them are getting.
