    Dear CPS Families,

    This morning, a sibling of a Chelsea Public Schools student was struck by a vehicle while walking to the Mary C. Burke Elementary Complex. The child was brought to the hospital where they were treated for minor injuries, and has since returned home. We thank the emergency responders and medical staff who swiftly cared for this young child.

    The CPS student, who witnessed the situation, was brought to school and immediately received support services and care through our social work and school staff.

    As a School District, we recognize the anxiety and concern that a situation such as this creates in our community. We are proactively working with the Chelsea Police Department to ensure that the area surrounding our Elementary Complex is safe for pedestrians and commuters travelling to school, particularly during drop off and pick up times.
