School officials respond to racist threat at Anne Arundel Co. High School

School Administrators from Chesapeake High School in Anne Arundel County sent a letter out to parents and members of their school community in regards to a racial incident that was brought to their attention on Friday.

According to school officials, the Counseling Office staff were notified of a "Kill All Blacks" message written on a sign-in sheet used by students for school counseling appointments.

The school says that they have taken the initiative to interview students who signed the sheet on Friday along with others in hopes of identifying the person responsible for the writing.

The Anne Arundel County Police Department has been alerted about the incident and is working closely with school officials to investigate.

Parents with any information from their children that would be helpful in the investigation to call the school, police, or the Student Safety Hotline at 1-877-676-9854.
