A 42-year old woman was arrested and charged for threatening to storm a school with loaded guns if her children would be forced to put on masks.

According to the Virginia police, Amelia King from Luray allegedly threatened to do so while at the Page County school board meeting.

The woman was charged with making an oral threat while at the school property and was released on unsecured bond of $5,000 on Friday afternoon.

The board was discussing on Covid-19 mitigation measures as the Omicron wave continues to cause significant community transmission, and in light of one of new Republican Governor Glenn Youngkin’s executive orders.

Youngkin ordered that parents should decide whether their children had to wear masks while in school.

During the public comment section of the meeting, a response from one of the four Page County residents who spoke turned confrontational.

“My children will not come to school on Monday with a mask on,” King told the Board. “Alright? That’s not happening. And I will bring every single gun loaded and ready to… I will call every…” King said but was cut off after surpassing the three minute limit.” I’ll see y’all on Monday,” she concluded her remarks.

The Page County school superintendent and school board chair, in a statement, said that they would not take the comments lightly.

“Not only do comments such as these go against everything we wish to model for our students, they go against the very nature of how we as a community should interact with each other. This kind of behavior is not tolerated from our students, faculty, staff, nor will it be tolerated by parents or guests of our school division,” the statement read.

The board further said it would tighten security at the school due to King’s comments.
