Brooklyn students, families fragmented after shooting

Some students in Sunset Park signs erected on the windows of her school during a shelter-in-place order following Tuesday’s mass shooting on the nearby subway — with a note saying, “Make NYC safe again.”

A gunman opened fire on a train car at Sunset Park’s 36th Street station during the morning rush, injuring 29 people. The shooting caused schools in the area to take shelter for at least several hours.

Some local schools — PS 24, Sunset Park High School, PS 371, and two Little Brooklyn Pre-K Center campuses — kept their doors closed pending release.

The photo of the children’s signs was tweeted by a local journalist and included another handwritten message reading “Have Hope NYC” followed by a heart.

According to the city’s Department of Education, additional police officers and school security officers were stationed at schools for discharge, and shuttle buses took students to subway stations.

Some after-school and sporting activities have also been cancelled, a department representative said.

Parents from District 15, which includes Sunset Park and also extends to some of Brooklyn’s most affluent neighborhoods like Park Slope and Carroll Gardens, met with DOE staffers Tuesday night.

“Some of our kids were on that train,” said Camille Casaretti, president of the district’s Community Education Council, an advisory group made up mostly of parents. “Our community is going to need a lot of support.”

Department safety director Mark Rampersant told families there was no plan to take shelter in schools tomorrow – but students could expect “we will show them love” and school safety agents will be available to carry out “temperature checks”. to perform.
