We are sharing the following message from Community Education Council for District 15 after a young student was killed on Thursday just a few blocks from our Adelphi campus.
You may have seen the terrible news that 7-year-old Kamari Hughes was tragically killed in a crosswalk by a NYPD tow truck driver who failed to yield. This happened a few blocks from schools. While the driver has been charged, locals demand greater response and enhanced pedestrian solutions. They report that children cross this busy street every day, to and from school, without the aid of crossing guards. The petition linked asks concerned community members to please read and sign for the safety of all of our children and then share widely.
