by MCS Staff

A Quince Orchard High School student was found unconscious in a nearby McDonald’s bathroom on Tuesday, March 21. According to Montgomery County Police, “at approximately 11:56 a.m., a Quince Orchard High school student was located unconscious in a bathroom in the 12100 block of Darnestown Road. Narcan was administered. The victim left the McDonald’s where he was stopped by an MCPD officer. He has been transported to an area hospital in stable condition.” Quince Orchard High School Principal Elizabeth L. Thomas sent the following message to Quince Orchard staff, students, and families (courtesy of FOX 5):

“This email is to inform you that a student was experiencing a medical emergency during lunch off school premises. Friends of the student took swift action to call 911 and emergency personnel arrived on scene. I along with our security team, administrators, and counseling team reported on scene to provide support to our students and reached out to families. The student was transported to the hospital and parents went to the hospital to meet them.
I want to express my appreciation for the quick action of our students to report and provide support to their friends. They followed the message we have been sharing which is when they see something, say something. This can help save lives.
We will continue to have counselors and other mental health professionals available to help our students. If you feel that your child would benefit from talking with our school counseling team or other mental health staff, please reach out to the school counseling office at 240-740-3620.
Thank you for your continued support and please feel free to reach out to me or your child’s grade level administrator if you have any questions or concerns.
