February 4th: 
Montgomery County Police have released a statement regarding threats that were circulating online Thursday that mentioned a shooting would occur at an MCPS school today, February 4.  MCPD says that an investigation determined that the threats were from a former student and were non-credible, and that the former MCPS student no longer lives in the United States.

February 3rd: 
MCPS has posted a message on its website regarding online threats made towards MCPS schools. The full message can be seen below:

Montgomery County Public Schools (MCPS) and Montgomery County Police (MCPD) have been made aware of a number of viral online threats being made toward schools in Montgomery County.

These social media threats are similar in style and content and mention a school shooting intended for Friday, Feb. 4 and include racial and hateful comments. The Montgomery County Police have investigated and determined the validity of these threats to be low-level.

MCPS and MCPD will continue to monitor social media and will actively investigate any specific threat in our community. The community is encouraged not to share these messages online but to report any such threats to local law enforcement.
