Dear Glasgow Middle School Families,

Good afternoon. Earlier this week, there was a fight between several students outside of our main office. One of our assistant principals was struck during the incident but was not seriously hurt. All of the students involved are receiving disciplinary consequences in alignment with our Student Rights and Responsibilities. 

There are now third and fourth hand anonymous rumors spreading around school that a student also threatened to bring a gun to school tomorrow. We are fully investigating these rumors in partnership with our Office of Safety and Security and the Fairfax County Police. We believe we have identified the students who may be involved, connected with those families, and the investigation will continue. Out of an abundance of caution, we will have additional uniformed school security and police presence/patrols at the school tomorrow. 

We hope that this short break at the end of the quarter (early release tomorrow and no school on Friday) will give students time to reset and come back to school following the expectations of behavior that we have for all - respect, kindness and resolving our issues with healthy and safe choices. Please take this time to talk with your students over the long weekend about your expectations as well. As a team, I know we can get our Glasgow Panthers back on track.

We recognize that these past two years have been incredibly challenging, and we do have supports in place. Please reach out to your child’s counselor.
