From the Breckinridge County School District:
This afternoon, we were made aware of a potentially dangerous situation in the Hardinsburg community. Local law enforcement advised Hardinsburg Elementary, Breckinridge County Middle School, Breckinridge County High School, and the ATC on how to proceed for the safety of our students and staff. All students in the Hardinsburg community will remain inside classrooms until further notification from local law enforcement. We wanted our school community to know about the events of the afternoon and how seriously we take student safety. Please feel free to let me know if you have any questions or concerns.
