Dear PS107 Families,
As most of you know by now, a tragic 'lone wolf' terrorist attack took place in lower Manhattan this afternoon. The attacker used a truck to mow down people on the bike path on West Street. Eight people were killed. Fifteen others were injured, including two students who were on a school bus that was struck by the truck. Four schools were in close proximity to the attack.
Sadly, this tragedy could have taken place anywhere. And is why all schools have regular lockdown drills.
Tomorrow we will keep alert to the concerns your children may express about this tragic event. Sarah Green, our Guidance Counselor, will be checking classrooms to see if any of our students need more support. If you'd like to schedule a time to speak with her, please email her at firstname.lastname@example.org, or stop by to see her at the security desk at morning arrival.
Please let me know if you have any questions.
