The following email went to the CCSC community on the evening of Sunday, April 21.
Dear CCSC Families,
We are shocked and deeply saddened to learn that one of our former students, Dzhokhor Tsarnaev, has been arrested in connection with the Boston Marathon bombings, the murder of an MIT police officer, and other crimes perpetrated during the daylong manhunt that brought our city to a standstill on Friday.
Dzhokhor attended CCSC in the 7th grade and 8th grade, from September 2005 through June 2007. He left in good standing to attend Cambridge Rindge and Latin School.
We grieve for the families and loved ones of all the victims. Our hearts are especially heavy thinking of the many other school communities affected, and particularly our friends at Neighborhood House Charter School, MIT, and Cambridge Rindge and Latin School.
