Opinion: Police, community stepped up after Sippican threat

May 3, 2022

To the editor:

The Marion Teachers Association wishes to thank Marion, Mattapoisett and the state first responders who responded to a non-specific threat at Sippican School on Thursday, April 29. 

There was an immediate police presence at the building, and staff and families worked in an effective and collaborative manner to ensure students' safety. 

We would also like to recognize the administration, the Marion School Committee, and town officials who also supported the children, teachers, and daycare providers in such a tense moment. Their composure reassured everyone.
