Via Dubraska Vale on B-CC Parent ListServ, MCPS reports the police found no threats. Students and staff are now sheltering in place and a reunification plan will be shared soon.

Early in the lunch period, around 11:30 am, B-CC students and staff were placed in a lockdown due to threats of a rifle and pipe bombs, according to @DCRealTimeNews10 on X. Students were in a lunch period at the initial time of lockdown. Students who were out for lunch were informed by Remind not to return to school. Administrators are working on a list of all students still present in the building.

According to MCPS, parents are being asked to go to the Lynbrook Center at 8001 Lynbrook Dr. Bethesda MD 20814.  Administrator Ms. Shapiro warned parents and students to not come back to B-CC at this time, as they will not be allowed on campus via Remind. Administrator Ms. Rizkallah via Remind said, “B-CC remains under a lockdown as MCPS continues to investigate.”

At this time AP and IB exams have both been cancelled for this afternoon.
