12.9.2021 Atlantic Middle School Incident

Dear Atlantic Middle School Community,

 

Earlier today, it was reported to me that two Grade 7 students created an Instagram account that targeted other students at Atlantic Middle School with homophobic language and included student photographs without their knowledge and/or permission.  Please know that the students responsible will be held accountable and appropriately disciplined for this serious incident which is completely unacceptable and hurtful to the targeted students and the entire Atlantic community.  Our administration, classroom teachers, and guidance counselors will be meeting with students tomorrow to continue to reinforce respecting one another in person and online as well as the power of words.

 

Quincy Public Schools takes all reports of this nature seriously and as always, our focus is on providing a safe and inclusive 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 alizaschneller@quincypublicschools.com. 

 

Sincerely,

 

Aliza A. Schneller

Principal, Atlantic Middle School
