The school said students in grades 2 through 6 will returned to the Upper Campus on Monday, with students in grades 7 through 12 returning Tuesday. This comes after the school was closed last Thursday and Friday for officials to develop a new safety plan, which was announced on Friday.
In an email to Henderson parents, Boston Superintendent Brenda Cassellius said there would be more safety staff, additional counseling in and out of school, more communication with parents and more crisis prevention training.
“This will include greeting students as they arrive via bus or on foot, connecting with them quickly and ensuring they are moving into the building and to their homerooms,” Cassellius said according to WBZ-TV. “Members of the Boston Police Department will also be visibly present in the area and available if needed.”
Principal Patricia Lampron, who is 61, is recovering at home after a 16-year-old student knocked her unconscious last Wednesday. The student, who claimed she was being provoked, has been charged with assault and battery and sent to a juvenile detention facility.
