Dear Parents, Guardians and Staff,
At approximately 11:45am today, the Milton Police Department notified me of an incident on the Milton/Mattapan line. The Milton Police instructed that no Lockdown or Shelter-In-Place was necessary in any of our schools. They did advise me to have Tucker Elementary School students remain indoors for recess.
