Parents learned of the incident Oct. 8 through a letter sent home by Principal Jamel Jernigan, who said the school’s administration and law enforcement are looking into what happened in that classroom.
“I was recently made aware of a social media post of a video involving Woodlawn High School students engaged in highly inappropriate behavior while in class,” the letter said in part. “An investigation is underway with school administration, our BCPS safety manager and the Baltimore County Police Department.”
Details about the circumstances of the incident and whether any disciplinary action was taken against the students or their teacher weren’t immediately clear Monday afternoon.

Yet Jernigan’s letter acknowledged that if a student’s behavior was found to be “inappropriate for the school environment,” they could be subject to unspecified disciplinary action.
Some parents were left speechless after learning about the incident.
“To be honest I have one child who’s 20. He just graduated two years ago,” said one parent. ”So with that being said im kindof glad I don’t have children in school anymore.. because what do you do, what do you say, what can you say?”MORE NEWS: Gubernatorial Candidate Rushern Baker Pledges To Live, Work Most Of The Year In Baltimore City If Elected
