December 18, 2008

IJAMSVILLE, Md. (AP) -- Linganore High School dismissed students for the day following the discovery that a male student brought a flammable material to school and planned to use it.

Frederick County school system spokeswoman Marita Loose says students attending Linganore High at Oakdale were evacuated to the stadium about 9 a.m. Administrators had initially planned to allow the students to return to the building for lunch, but decided after further investigation to dismiss students shortly before noon.

The student who brought the material to school is expected to be charged.

Loose says he will also face disciplinary action from the school system.

Loose says the flammable material has been secured and the building is being searched.

School officials announced that all after-school and evening activites scheduled at Linganore High are canceled for today. This includes the Green Valley Elementary choral concert that was scheduled to take place at Linganore.
