Description

Letter from a Dorchester parent to one of their children's schools. The parent informs the school of the reason for the child's absence, which is violence related to busing. The parent's daughter had been assaulted, and they did not want the other child to also be physically hurt. The parent emphasized that the child should receive extra homework for the days missed, but should under no circumstances remain in Roxbury after school had let out.
