Per the letter, the threat is not believed to be credible, but school administrators, the security team, and the community engagement police officer will continue to be visible and on high alert this week. The full letter can be seen below:

“Dear Cavalier Parents and Guardians,

I am writing to inform you about an incident that occurred at school on Wednesday, November 30, 2022, and how we are addressing it.

It was brought to our attention this morning at approximately 11:35 a.m. that graffiti with threating language was found in one of our bathrooms. All students were safe and continued today with their regular school day schedule. The incident has been reported to the Montgomery County Police Department and the Montgomery County Public Schools Office of Safety and Security. While we do not believe this threat to be credible, our school administrators, security team, and community engagement police officer, will continue to be visible and on high alert this week.

Providing our students with a safe leaming environment is our top priority! Please contact us at 240-740-0100, if you have any questions. I am also providing the Maryland Safe Schools tip line (1-833-632-7233) as a resource.


Dr. Joe L. Rubens
