Daughter, who is now 4, will start kindergarten (K1) in September. So we’ve been looking at some of the elementary schools with K1 classes in Roslindale, where we live, and in neighboring West Roxbury and Jamaica Plain.
It was particularly scary, then, to see “triple shooting” and “Bates elementary” in the same post on Universal Hub. Adam, who wrote the post, also lives in Roslindale.
The site of the shooting was not Bates – but it was elsewhere in Roslindale. Bates doesn’t have K1 classes – but it’s scary enough for kids of any age, and for parents, when a school is locked down – as Bates was.
