The Tattler received news of a shelter in place at Walter Johnson High School around 11 am this morning for undisclosed threats in the area. The reason for the shelter in place has not yet been disclosed.

Montgomery County Public Schools have faced three incidents of bomb threats over two days. The first threat took place on May 16 at Bethesda-Chevy Chase High School. Then, on May 17, the second and third instances occurred at Walt Whitman High School and Bethesda Elementary School respectively. It is worth noting that these three schools are located within a three-mile radius of each other.

Fortunately, all threats have been deemed unfounded, and the safety of the schools was not compromised. At this time, the police have not disclosed any information regarding whether or not they believe the incidents are related. However, they are actively investigating the matter to ensure the safety and security of the schools and the community.

Whitman Freshman Anna Daly shared, “Our principal came over the loudspeaker, and at first I thought it was a drill, but when we went outside I realized it was more serious and even more so when the police came.” Many students had similar experiences. B-CC Sophomore Sasha Ingber added, “I wasn’t worried about the the lockdown until my phone was blowing up with my friends sending me pictures of the police officers with huge guns entering the building. That’s when I started to get really scared.”
