from a Montgomery County Police school officer:
The school is aware of a rumor that students from Northwest HS intend to vandalize the football field before tomorrow’s game [at Seneca Valley]. Please speak with your children and emphasize that this is being taken very seriously and should anyone be found vandalizing property at either school, the police will be called and arrests will be made. While it isn’t surprising for talk like this to take place before a big game, should this happen, the students would be disrespecting not only the targeted school, but their own school. School pride can be displayed in much more positive and effective ways.
