A student involved in a behavior incident at on Thursday afternoon is now receiving education elsewhere, according to a schools spokesman.
The incident involved a student making a threat against a teacher that resulted in a call to police, according to a letter from Monique Davis, regional assistant superintendent, that was sent home to parents on Friday. The letter also stated that "appropriate actions will be taken."
Bob Mosier of Anne Arundel County Public Schools (AACPS) declined to elaborate on the specific threat and said that the situation was resolved before police arrived at the school. Mosier said he could not respond to any reports or allegations about the student's behavior towards other students and teachers.
However, Mosier did confirm that the student's "education environment" has changed and refuted the rumors that the student had a knife or any kind of weapon at the school.
In addition, Mosier said that principal Shauna Kauffman had previously scheduled time off on Friday and Monday and that her absence from the school was not related to this incident.
Davis stated in the letter sent home to parents that she spent time at the school on Friday to help resolve the situation and that Janine Robinson, the former principal at , will be at the school on Monday.
Mosier confirmed Davis met with parents who came to the school Friday morning to express concerns.
"It can be frustrating to parents," said Mosier of the process where the school system must act but can't reveal specifics about an individual student or situation where parents aren't privy to all the facts because of privacy laws.
