“Our hearts are with the students, the families and the faculty of Saugus High School. We mourn the two students who lost their lives, and our prayers are with their classmates and their friends, their families, and the Saugus High School faculty and staff. No student should ever have to worry about going to school and never returning home, and it is unacceptable that this is the reality for students throughout the country,” ASCD Interim CEO and Executive Director Ronn Nozoe said. “We must continue to work and advocate for policy that will make schools a safe place for our kids, including gun reform. We appreciate the efforts of our elected officials who are working toward this already, but it is incumbent on all of us to take action now.”
