himself to be one of the children. he was just another big kidigid sharing with these children clde that he's known for quite someum time as he's been a teacher's th aide at that elementary schoolae as well as most recently a volunteer.volu now, he told us that he never engaged in any sort of sexual interactions with any of those children but he said that hehe was privy to all these videos, that he was watching them ashem they performed these acts oned camera. now, he says that a lot oflot these videos were taken on the e children's cell phones and p then those videos were sent to his cell phone via that socialso media app we know as kik where e you can remain anonymous andmo send pictures and video through that app.through that a that is how he says hee received the videos on his phone.phone. tony, shawn.ha >> sounds like he thought whathw law doing was okay. o what was your sense? did he understand the gravity of thevih charges ag

eveng, to be a little after commuteerom time but it may get in on the i tail end of the commuteil end o especially back out to theally west. so, this is something to watch for. i know d.c. has planned forlaed this.th they've done a lot ofey pretreatment and they're ready'e to go in cntase athis is a lita bit stronger coming through this evening and of coursend ofe this front will come throughront this evening. it's going to squeeze out somezt snow showers and i think therehi will be enough snow possibly to accumulate on dusty grassy dg areas and down in southerns do maryland there's the potentialhe for a little bit more but keepiu in mind it's so cold today and y we're not going to have a lotgoo of sunshine to warm up the warup pavement, so once these snowso o showers do begin to fly this evening, they could accumulate e a little bit and it won't take't much to cause some very slippery conditions later on lat this evening. evening just watch out for that and i fi think it will be probably tailr end of the commute.omu tomorrow the arctic air starts coming on in. it's going to be breezy. b bre it's going to be even windy byin the afternoon with some gusts se up over potentially 30 milesly e
per hour. in the teens and the 20's but the feels-like temperature tomorrow is going to berrow brutally cold. single digits or low teens fores just about all of us out there.th here's the deal on futurecast this morning we start off withnr a little bit of sunshine.le biti maybe for one or two hours after the sunrises we see some m sunshine.sunshine. the clouds will thicken up.ke u now, you begin to see a littlea bit of snow down to the southou here. that is from the disturbance thd down to the south. it comes up over richmond.ichm a piece of this could potentially come up intoome southern maryland and bring ad b little dusting here.ng h but you notice back to the the northwest, this is the cold c air that -- snow showersho coming in with the cold air thec and that will move throughove later on this evening and comeic on across. so, couple little snow showersen to the south and southernouther maryland, that's calvertnd, at's county, saint mary's county,, you may get asa dusting of snows and then we'll have the snow showers coming through and thenu cold air and then tomorrow theot air that's coming is justs j going to be so cold you'll be seeing streamers of snowrs of sw coming down all the way from f lake erie with lake effect snow showers and then justn j

nobody noticed anything.ing. now, they didn't the particulars to theirrtular questions answered, and that'sha because school officials as wewe know keep saying there's only'so so much that they can say. say they can't get into details because of the ongoing investigation.stigion but they were able to offer o some concrete measures for the school community here. h among those, they are going to o install 26 new security securit cameras around the school. sch there is going to be a task t force to look at policy changes and training. trainin they're also going to beo be changing the procedures for pdu picking up students and and signing them out.ut parents also wanted more information.io they wanted to get notified asof to who is volunteering at thetet school. they want a list of names and a more information and iton andt appears that they will be able l to get that and also a question came up that ift parents wanted to move theirov t child to another school wouldchl they be allowed to transferranse and school officials said that yes, they would allow those
transfers from woodsrooo elementary school. now, maryland law says that school employees are required rd to notify any suspicions of abuse or neglect to child protective servicess immediately upon any sort of suspicion and then follow up with a written report in 48 hours. superintendent dr. kevinende maxwell says he thinks that perhaps some of those tho reporting rules were not followed.fo he's certainly going to follownt up on that and he said that all prince george's countyount school employees will be b retrained on the reportingepor requirements. live in glenarden, i'm melanienn alnwick, fox5 local ews. >> ahead what kanye west said si about taylor swift in a new n song has a lot of people talking. first weather and traffic. gary. s morningnid out thi but not windy. the temperatures we have rightus now pretty much the way it feels out there. it's still sti single digits thal i-81 corridor.rr. martinsburg you're nine. dulles is 15. 15.
