March 14th Update

Dear Churchill Parents and Guardians: We wanted to reach out to give you update on today’s student-led walk out. At 8:30 this morning a large group of students left school property. We observed students carpooling and waiting for busses to go down to DC. Montgomery County Police were on site and in the surrounding areas to monitor the students as part of our planning.  If your child was absent or missed classes today you will receive the automatic message. The second walk out happened at 10:00 this morning and several hundred students participated by staying on campus and gathering in our stadium. These students had an agenda with student speakers who read off the victim names from Stoneman-Douglas H.S in Florida. Montgomery County Police were on site for this event as well.  These students returned to class at the end of their seventeen minute walk out.  And on behalf of all administrative team, we want to thank all the parents for attending the PTSA last night.  We gathered a lot of information to make enhancements and heard your concerns. A direct result from last night about our traffic concerns was the increased activity of Montgomery County Police during our student drop off. Thank you for your continued support. 

March 9th School Message Regarding Walk Out

Dear Churchill Parents and Guardians: Today my colleagues and I have met with student leaders that have expressed a desire to participate in the student- led call for school walk-out on Wednesday March 14th.  Our top priority is to support the academic and social-emotional needs of our students while maintaining a safe and orderly learning environment for all. We encourage you to talk to your child about how they may be feeling and the importance of expressing themselves in appropriate ways at school. One of the groups we have met with have informed us that they intend to leave school at 8:30am on the morning of Wednesday, March 14th and go down to Washington DC. MCPS will treat any departure from campus during the instructional day as unexcused. MC Police Department are working with us as well. The second group wishes to leave class at 10:00am and assemble on campus to recognize the seventeen minutes of the tragedy in Parkland, Florida. We have mutually agreed to allow this group to assemble in the stadium for those that wish to participate. We will have a modified bell schedule to allow instruction to continue with optional lesson plans that teachers can use to promote a conversation of these events and their meaning. Thank you for your continued support.

Community Traffic Message

Dear Churchill Parents and Guardians:We are reaching out to get your help with an ongoing safety concern. Recently, one of our students was hit by a car while crossing the street near the power lines on Gainsborough Road. The student did not receive life threatening injuries but did suffer a leg injury. As most of you are aware, we have students who park on school property, off school property, at friends’ houses in the surrounding neighborhoods, and who have parents drop them off at non-designated drop locations. We cannot emphasize enough how important it is to drive slowly around our entire school campus, the surrounding neighborhoods, and to cautiously obey drop off signs and locations as many students are exiting vehicles. How can you help? Please do not drop off students on Gainsborough Road or Victory Lane. Instead, be patient and drive students onto our campus in the parent drop off loop.  The Churchill HS PTSA has begun a Traffic Safety Program for our school and community. Churchill and the PTSA are working together to ensure a safe traffic environment for all students. Please get involved with this important initiative.  Together we can ensure that all of our students remain safe coming to school.

Message to the Community 3/7/18

March 7, 2018                                                                                                                                                                                   Dear Churchill Parents and Guardians: I am writing to inform you of a non-credible threat received at the school today and how it is being addressed.This morning an anonymous individual called the main office at our school and indicated that there was a bomb in the building.  The voice and the language were identical to the non-credible threat we received on February 21.  In consultation with law enforcement and security staff, today’s threat was deemed non-credible therefore no evacuation procedures were needed.  We take all threats to our school seriously.  As the Montgomery County Police Department recently noted, all threats are being investigated and those who make these threats are subject to criminal charges.  As always, we are committed to the well-being of all of our students. As a parent/guardian, you can assist us in this effort by impressing upon your child that a bomb scare is not a prank, but a dangerous act that violates both school rules and public laws. We ask parents and guardians to remind their children that, if they hear or see anything that would affect the safety and security of students and/or staff at our school, they should immediately report it.  Sincerely,Brad RohnerAssistant Principal
