Students and staff at Whetstone Elementary School in Montgomery Village witnessed a man in what appeared to be a KKK uniform during school today, according to a letter sent home by principal Loretta Woods.

The man was observed in the school parking lot, near the edge of school property, but did not interact with any student or staff member.

Non-emergency police was contacted and Montgomery County Police responded by coming to campus to investigate. School counselors and administrators met with several students to answer questions and help them process what they had witnessed.

The full letter to the Whetstone community can be seen below:

“Dear Whetstone families,

l am writing to inform you about an incident that occurred at school today. Students and staff, at
recess, witnessed a man dressed in what appeared to be a KKK uniform. He was observed in our parking lot, near the edge of our school property. He did not come up to the school or come onto our playground. He did not interact with any student or staff member.

School staff informed administration who contacted the non-emergency police and our security coordinator. Montgomery County Police and our MCPS Security Coordinator responded by coming to our campus to investigate.

Our counselors and administrators met with several of the students who understandably had questions and needed help processing what they had seen. Our counselors will continue to be available for students, who need support to process the incident, in the coming days.

We appreciate our Whetstone staff members who immediately communicated with administration to ensure the safety of our students. All of us at Whetstone Elementary School appreciate the continued support of our families and want to emphasize that student and staff safety is a priority each day. If you have any questions about this incident don’t hesitate to call the school at 240-740-1060.

Sincerely,
Mrs. Loretta Woods
Principal”
