Dozens of stu­dents eval­u­ated for bee stings at high school

The Washington Times Daily - - METRO -

More than 30 stu­dents at a Gaithers­burg high school have been eval­u­ated for pos­si­ble bee stings.

The in­ci­dent hap­pened shortly af­ter 8 a.m. Thurs­day at Quince Or­chard High School. It was not im­me­di­ately clear where the bees came from. Mont­gomery County Fire spokesman Pete Piringer said crews were look­ing for the source of the bees, but be­lieve they came from a hive that was off-cam­pus.

A to­tal of 32 stu­dents were eval­u­ated, but only three were taken to a hospi­tal with in­juries that were not con­sid­ered life-threat­en­ing.

Fire of­fi­cials said they re­ceived re­ports that some stu­dents may have had al­ler­gic re­ac­tions to the bees.
