HIXSON (WRCB) - The scare made for quite a shuffle for parents with children at nearby schools.

Some schools had to cancel bus transportation.  Others had buses return to school with students they couldn't get past the barriers for some neighborhoods.  Parents at McConnell Elementary received a phone call from the school to let them know what buses wouldn't run this afternoon.

Three schools were affected by the scare:   Gann's Middle Valley, Loftis and McConnell Elementary Schools.
