BPS added extra security to the Hyde Park Education Complex today after a staff member found a gun outside the building. In a statement, BPS says:
There is extra security in place in and around our school today. A staff member found a firearm outside the school building and we notified Boston Police, which are investigating. The situation is secure and teaching and learning are continuing as usual. We take the safety of our students, staff, and community seriously. There is increased security at the school and a sweep of the exterior was completed. Boston Police and our School Police will continue to monitor the situation. No disruptions were made to our normal daily activity today.
In June, the building, which houses New Mission High School and the Boston Community Leadership Academy, went into "safe mode" after the brother of a student tried sneaking a gun inside.
