Around 20 Montgomery County middle school students were stabbed with a needle in class Wednesday, according to the McNabb Middle School Principal.

The principal said a student was "horsing around" with a sewing needle in a humanities class and poked the students. He said all of the students saw a doctor, and got their blood drawn and tested as a precaution.

The Montgomery County School District released a statement about the incident on it's Facebook that stated, "The School District has been made aware of misinformation that has circulated regarding a stabbing at the High School today. This information is false. An incident involving a sewing needle did occur at McNabb Middle School today in a co-curricular class. A few students were stuck with the needle. The parents of the students involved were subsequently notified and the students were seen by a medical professional. Student safety and welfare is a top priority."

The school district said the student was disciplined, but would not say what punishment he or she faced.

Twenty kids in one classroom get stabbed by a needle and the Central Office PR people issue a statement saying a 'few' kids got stuck? Twenty kids is not a FEW kids. Twenty kids is almost the entire class. By the way, I can understand how one kid can jab another kid with a needle, but I can't understand how 20 kids get stabbed before the teacher or some adult stopped the nonsense. Can we say lack of supervision?
