Knife Found in Locker at Roberto Clemente Middle School


Administrators found a knife inside a student’s locker at Roberto Clemente Middle School last Thursday, May 7, according to a letter sent home to parents today by Roberto Clemente Middle School Principal Khadija F. Barkley.

The letter states that it was brought to school administration’s attention that a knife was seen in a student’s locker on Thursday, and another student brought a toy gun to school on Friday, May 8. The letter did not say the incidents were related. “Administration retrieved the knife from the student's locker and it was investigated by the Montgomery County Police Department. The police retrieved the toy gun from the home of the student,” said Barkley in the letter.

“We do not believe either of the students intended to harm or frighten anyone, but both students will face appropriate consequences aligned to the MCPS Code of Conduct,” continued Barkley.
