Message Concerning Viral Threats in Social Media

December 17, 2021

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 locally, in Maryland and in other parts of the country. The social media threats are similar in style and content and mention either a school shooting or bomb threat that is meant to occur on Friday, December 17. 

There is no indication that these messages have any credibility; however, 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.
