From bomb threats to guns found on campus, Montgomery Co. students push schools for added security

October 30, 2023
Captured in a metropolitan Atlanta, Georgia primary school, this photograph depicts a typical classroom scene, where an audience of school children were seated on the floor before a teacher at the front of the room, who was reading an illustrated storybook, during one of the scheduled classroom sessions. Assisting the instructor were two female students to her left, and a male student on her right, who was holding up the book, while the seated classmates were raising their hands to answer questions related to the story just read.

Sam Ross, a junior at Montgomery Blair High School in Silver Spring, told her local school board how a rash of bomb threats — three at her school alone — have helped to create “fear in the community.” Ross told the Montgomery County Board that in addition to the bomb threats, a student was found with a gun on campus Monday at Walter Johnson High School, and on the same day, a gun was also found at an elementary school.
