Posted on 11/29/2021

Dear South~West Middle School Community,


Today, I was informed of the possibility of two South~West Middle School students each being in possession of a weapon, specifically a folding knife.  After being brought to the office, the students admitted to having folding knives and showing them to classmates.  In both situations, the weapons were not intended as a threat to any member of the school community.  The students will both be held accountable and appropriately disciplined for these serious incidents which were unrelated to each other. 


Please know that 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 617-984-8729 or via email at [email protected].  Assistant Principal Susan Foley ([email protected]) and Guidance Counselors Jill Kyranis ([email protected]) and Shane Abboud ([email protected]) are available to speak with you or your student as well.
