MILAN, Tenn. — Milan Elementary School had to be evacuated Friday for an unknown reason. Law enforcement officers from the Milan Police Department and Gibson County Sheriff’s Department crowded around the school. According to Milan Elementary School Resource Officer Nick Glenn, the situation sparked major concern and resulted in the school’s evacuation. “There was a reason, a cause of concern for us to have an evacuation at the school building, and we did that,” Glenn said. “Each student got out safely, and we did relocate.” Students relocated from Milan Elementary School to Milan Middle School less than a mile away. Some concerned parents came and picked up their kids while the remainder of students relocated to Milan Middle School were transferred back to Milan Elementary School for normal dismissal. Milan Elementary School parent Laca Wacker says she was startled by the whole situation. “I’m so relieved! I was scared, scared to death,” Wacker said. “You don’t think that would ever happen at your school. You don’t think that would ever happen. It’s scary.” However, most parents, such as Kristi Johnson, said they knew everything was going to be fine. “I knew they’d be taken care of,” Johnson said. “We have great staff and administrators, and I had full faith that the kids were going to be OK.”
