Dear Clarksburg and Quince Orchard Communities,

We are writing to provide you with the facts of what transpired following the Clarksburg vs. Quince Orchard JV football game on Monday, November 1, 2021.

At 9:03 pm there was an altercation between a group of three students in the parking lot behind the stadium at Clarksburg High School. During the altercation, one female student who attends Clarksburg High School sustained an injury from a knife. The student was transported to the hospital and has non-life threatening injuries. The additional two individuals who were involved in the incident attend neither Quince Orchard nor Clarksburg High School. This event was not related to the game and does not represent any issues or concerns between Quince Orchard and Clarksburg High Schools.

Montgomery County Police were called to the school. We also had support from the Office of School Safety and Emergency Management, and the Office of Teaching, Learning and Schools.

We appreciate the support we have received and take every concern seriously. Our students and staff safety is our number one priority and we will not waiver from this commitment at any time. As we shared with students and staff today, if you see something say something. Students found to be responsible for this altercation will face consequences in alignment with the MCPS Student Code of Conduct and action from Montgomery County Police. We will continue to work in collaboration with all stakeholders to follow up on any concerns. Thank you for your support and understanding and if you have any questions about this incident don’t hesitate to call us at 240-740-3600.

Sincerely,

Edward Owusu, Principal

Clarksburg High School”
