Weymouth Mother Wants Son Out of Middle School Before He Hurts Someone
A Weymouth mom is worried about the safety of others while her child attends school.
Weymouth: A South Shore mother wants her mentally-ill child taken out of the Abigail Adams Middle School and placed in a specialized school.
Sethany Griffin of Weymouth is worried about the safety of others if her 12-year-old son remains at the middle school, according to Boston.com.
“When something happens, and my child hurts himself, a peer, a teacher, or a family member, I just want to ensure that people were aware of the risk ahead of time,” she told the Globe.
Her actions to transfer her son to a more specialized school comes months after Lori Kettell pulled her autistic son out of the sixth grade for being bullied. Kettell also wants the Weymouth Public School system to send her son to a school that can handle the situations, the Globe reported.
Superintendent Kenneth Salim would not comment on the specific cases but said the school is committed to ensuring the safety of every student. The administration has rejected both students’ requests to leave the district and said they can handle the situations at the Abigail Adams Middle School.
