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.
