  1. What can parents do to implement a type of Clery disclosure act (which colleges have)? I understand from a parent that the school successfully conducted a lockdown after a student brought a gun to school, wished his classmates good-by, and shot himself. The funeral took place in Aspen Hill one week later on that snowy Tuesday Feb 17, 2015.

  2. I understand that this would need to be re-formulated to protect privacy rights for those students who are under 18 years of age:

  3. In the interest of accuracy, please note that the student hung himself, according to information that the parents' coalition received from police officers at the scene of the incident.

    1. Was there a even lockdown? It's possible that the parent's information and the information you received are both correct. I'll defer to what you heard, which has a written source.
