Giles County Schools have delayed the students’ return by at least one day — the result of a map in a “Batman” movie and a website that pointed to its contents. The movie “Dark Knight Rising” had a map in one scene that included a site called “Sandy Hook”, the name of the Connecticut school where dozens were gunned down last month. The same map also has a site called “Narrows”, and an Internet web site surmised it might refer schools in Narrows in Giles County. In a note to parents, school officials say there is no direct threat, but they are taking precautions and additional safeguards, and for now, the start of school is pushed back at least one day.
