Schools resume classes after bombings
BOSTON (WHDH) -- Elementary school students in Dorchester returned to class Monday, a week after their classmate was killed in the Boston Marathon bombing.
Martin Richard, 8, attended the Neighborhood House Charter School in Dorchester.
The school’s headmaster said they made sure to be prepared with counselors and professionals Monday for anyone who may have needed them.
“We have our professionals working with every single classroom and so we were able to make sure we have the counselors available. The teachers are well trained. We have amazing staff and an amazing support team and administrators who help with that,” said Kevin Andres, headmaster of the Neighborhood House Charter School.
Martin’s mother is the school’s librarian and his sister also goes to school there.
Counselors were on hand for students to talk with about their fried, Martin Richard. They were both seriously injured in the blasts and are recovering in the hospital.
