Shattered by 'sick prank'

Police ride city school buses in wake of BB shootings


Deborah Linett, associate director of Head Start in Haverhill, sent a letter home to parents yesterday telling them that after the bus was hit by a BB, police responded and escorted the bus to the Fox Center on Elm Street. She told parents that all of the children were checked for particles of glass and that those who were sitting closest to the window that was hit by a BB were checked more extensively by the program’s transportation coordinator, bus monitor and health service manager.

“The timing of this event is particularly awful given the horrific events in Newtown, CT,” Linett said. “Thankfully, our children are fine, however, our nerves are jangled.”
