NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WMOT)  --  Students at Antioch High in Nashville were sent home early Thursday morning after the school received what officials described as “a significant threat to the safety of students and faculty."

WSMV-TV says Ravenwood High in Brentwood was also evacuated Thursday in response to a bomb threat. Few details are available for either incident.

There have been a rash of school evacuations since the first of the year.

Hillwood High received a bomb threat in January. A student showed up at a Portland school with a pipe bomb in February.

Back in March Nashville’s Strattford and Hume-Fogg schools were evacuated on the same day.

In addition to Thursday's evacuations, Independence High in Thompson Station, Jackson High in Jackson County, and Centennial High in Franklin have all evacuated students in response to bomb threats so far in April.
