Dear MCPS Community Members:

Please read this important message below about school threats from the Montgomery County Department of Police.

Sincerely,

Montgomery County Public Schools

Montgomery County Department of Police – Statement on School Threats
February 10, 2020

Since the beginning of the school year, Montgomery County has experienced several threats directed at schools throughout the County. These threats, directed toward other students and/or the school community, have come in various forms, but primarily social media. Some of these threats have been direct while others have used suggestive words and/or images. These threats have proven not to be credible after detectives had conducted thorough investigations.

Many of the people making these threats have motives that range from wanting to disrupt school activities to making the threat as a prank.

The Montgomery County Department of Police fully investigates each threat and works to identify the person or persons responsible for making the threat. If a person makes threats, regardless whether it is a prank, he/she can be criminally charged. Charges may vary, but threats to schools can include the following:

Education Article 26-101-Disorderly Conduct/Disruption of School Activities
Criminal Law 3-1001-Threat of Mass Violence
Criminal Law 6-107(a)(2)-Threat of Arson/Destructive devices
The Montgomery County Department of Police urges parents to consider the following points:

Monitor your child’s social media and talk to him/her about using social media responsibly.
See something, say something – If you or your child become aware of a threat or other suspicious activity that is concerning, please call police. In regard to social media, please do not share the concerning message – again, call police.
Remind your child that any threat made will be investigated, even if the child’s intention is to be humorous or as a retaliatory prank.
Members of the Montgomery County Department of Police and the Montgomery County Public Schools continue to work in partnership to maintain safe schools for students, staff, and our community.

Dear Parents and Guardians:

I am writing to inform you that a civil lawsuit stemming from the October 31, 2018, incident in the Damascus High School boys’ locker room will be filed later today. We anticipate that this will draw an increased volume of media attention to our school community. Please know that the DHS staff is here to support our students and we will enforce our standard safety and privacy protocols that keep media off property when students are on campus for the instructional day. Additionally, our counselors and psychologists are aware and prepared to support students as needed.

We remain committed to the safety of our students. I will share any additional information that will affect our school community when it is available.

Thank you again for your support for our students and school. Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns.

Sincerely,

Kevin Yates

Principal, Damascus High School

Reduce Fees & Penalties - Did You Know?

You should still file your taxes, even if you can't pay, as the failure-to-file penalty may be 10 times more than the failure-to-pay penalty. If you are unable to pay in full, try to file your tax return and pay as much as you can.

Damascus Residents... Let your opinion be heard! DHS Needs Your Help!!
The Damascus High School $95M renovation and addition is in the final level of approval. County Executive Elrich recently recommended funding only 94% of the MCPS CIP, so 6% (or about $100M) could be cut. The County Council is currently reviewing the MCPS Capital Improvements Program (CIP). Please help advocate for full funding by sending emails to the County Council members.
SEND AN EMAIL TODAY. Below is suggested wording for you to customize and use. We ask that you send emails directly to the four people listed below by February 6, 2020.

******************************************************************
Montgomery County Council,
I am a ___________(parent/student/staff member/community member) in the Damascus High School Community. I strongly urge your support to fully fund the $95 million renovation and addition at Damascus High School as detailed in the MCPS Board of Education Requested FY 2021-2026 Capital Improvements Program.
Damascus High School is the oldest upper-level building in the MCPS system. Damascus HS was built in 1950 and was last renovated over 40 years ago in 1978. Damascus HS received “red zone” end of life span ratings for interior finishes, plumbing, electrical, equipment and elevators in the 2018 MCPS School Facilities Assessment. A significant security concern is that the main administrative office of Damascus HS is not located at the front entrance. Also, Damascus High School’s outdated narrow stairwells create dangerous “choke points” for students and staff moving throughout the building every school day. These choke points would prove especially dangerous in an evacuation.
The Damascus High School community deserves a 21st-century learning environment that is safe and supports student achievement. Critically needed facility improvements at Damascus HS are imperative to support our children as they grow and learn. Thank you for all that you do for our county and for what I hope will be your support for the entire $95 million renovation and addition at Damascus High School.

Sincerely,
YOUR NAME
