Greenback School to resume classes Wednesday

Dailey Times Staff Reports
Greenback School will resume classes Wednesday at their regular time, according to Joan Lovelace, administrative assistant to Loudon County Director of Schools Wayne Honeycutt.

School officials canceled today’s classes after a propane tank leak was discovered Monday evening. The tank was located at the back of the school off the agriculture campus.

Loudon County dispatchers sent out a reverse 9-1-1 to anyone within a half-mile radius of the school, evacuating them from the area. After firefighters put water on the propane tank and cooled it, nearby residents were informed that they could go back to their homes shortly after 6 p.m.
