CENTREVILLE, Md. — The Queen Anne's County Sheriff's Office is trying to identify three people who somehow gained unauthorized access to three virtual school classes.

It happened Friday, during virtual class sessions for Kent Island High School.

One of the suspects is accused of making some form of threat involving firearms, although no specific date or school was mentioned.

“Our School Resource Officers and Deputies take situations that occur in our schools very seriously. Our number one goal is to ensure a safe, secure, and safe learning environment in both our public and private schools," said Sheriff Gary Hofmann. We will do everything we can to ensure that any person who disrupts school activity will be held accountable for their actions."

Investigators believe the suspects used a cell phone to gain access to the classes.

Anyone with information should email or call 410-758-0770 extension 1273.
