Dear Point Webster Middle School Community,

I am writing to you about an incident involving inappropriate use of technology by students.  On Friday, November 12, I was notified about a video recording that involved three Grade 8 students that contained racist language directed at specific students at Point Webster Middle School.  The video has been shared within the school community and is very disturbing to all of us.  The student who was recorded using the targeted racist language is subject to serious disciplinary consequences for their actions.

I have also been made aware that some Point Webster Middle School students may be planning a walkout on Monday, November 15, 2021.  Given the age of our students, I am concerned about student safety.  Therefore, students will not be permitted to leave the building.  We would ask that you reinforce this with your student(s).  

Please be advised that we will offer students a safe space within their classrooms to have the opportunity to share their concerns and let their voices be heard by teachers, administrators, and student support staff.  

As always, I am available to answer any questions and concerns you may have at 617-984-6600 or [email protected]
