May 08, 2008

SMITHSBURG - A rumor about a weapon on Smithsburg High School property Tuesday was unfounded, according to Washington County Public Schools officials.

Administrators "thoroughly checked it out and determined it was unfounded, and that there was never any threat to students, staff or the community," schools spokesman Will Kauffman said Wednesday.

To put the rumor to rest, letters were sent home with students from Smithsburg High School, along with the town's elementary and middle schools, he said.
