Potomac, MD - An investigation is underway after a student received an antisemitic text message at a Montgomery County high school.


Teachers and parents of students at Winston Churchill High School received a letter Tuesday informing them of what happened on March 2.


Montgomery County police spokesman Officer Rick Goodale says a student whose class was in the midst of studying the Holocaust received the text.


Principal Joan Benz said in a message to the Churchill community that it was sent via an app that allows users to send messages using a fake phone number.


Benz says such hurtful comments will not be tolerated. The school is investigating.
