Dear Atlantic Middle School Community,


This afternoon, it was reported to me that during a classroom discussion, a Grade 6 student made a comment to another student that threatened a classmate, including mentioning a weapon.  After conducting an investigation with Director of Safety & Security Michael Draicchio and the Quincy Police Department, we have determined that the student responsible does not have access to a weapon.  Please know that the student will be held accountable and appropriately disciplined for this serious incident.  Our classroom teachers and guidance counselors will be meeting with students today and tomorrow to reinforce appropriate school behaviors.


Quincy Public Schools takes all reports of this nature seriously and as always, our focus is on providing a safe school community for students and staff.  If you or your student have concerns about this incident, please feel free to reach out to me at 617-984-8727 or via email at [email protected].
