POTOMAC, Md. (AP) - Winston Churchill High School officials are being called on to better address racially charged incidents that have occurred at the school.

The Washington Post reports (http://wapo.st/2hAM9AW) that last month, two students taped a “whites only” sign to a school’s bathroom door. In a Dec. 7 incident, students allegedly entered a Republican club meeting, called the members racist and wrote “Black Lives Matter” on a classroom whiteboard.

Montgomery County Republican leader Richard Jurgena addressed the county school board on Tuesday and called for a “complete, rapid and nonpartisan” investigation of the Dec. 7 incident.

A Churchill employee told the Washington Post that the school didn’t alert teachers about either incident. Sixteen-year-old student Ethan Miller says school officials need to better inform parents and students about problems at the school.

Churchill’s principal, Joan Benz, didn’t respond to requests for comment.
