10.31.2023 Superintendent's Message to QPS Community
Posted on 10/31/2023

Dear Quincy Public Schools Community,

As you know, last week on October 25 and 26, 2023, Quincy High School and Point Webster Middle School received bomb threats that were called into the school offices.  These threats were very alarming and disruptive to the entire school community, not only for the two schools involved, but to all of Quincy Public Schools.  The threats caused stress to our staff, administrators, students, and families, interrupted student learning, and diverted important community resources as the Quincy Police and Fire Departments responded to these threats.

I am writing today to tell you how thankful I am that the investigation by the Quincy Police Department assisted by the City IT Department and their service provider identified the person who made these calls. The individual responsible has been identified and will be charged accordingly.  These are very serious charges and conviction can carry a sentence including the potential for significant criminal penalties, fines, and other restitution requirements.

Thank you for your patience and cooperation as the investigation unfolded.  I hope that this message will serve as a deterrent for others considering making such threats.

Kevin W. Mulvey, J.D.
Superintendent of Schools
