This is where my housemate teaches...

A message from the school director:
As you may be aware, there was a shooting at 12:40 PM on Tuesday, August 24th directly outside our school cafeteria on S. Roman St. Two young men were shot and killed – both were family members of students who attend New Orleans College Prep at Sylvanie Williams. This was the second shooting directly in front of our school building in the past 8 months. Both incidents were in the middle of a school day with children and staff inside the building. On both occasions, our staff responded swiftly to secure the building and protect our children from harm and everyone was safe. But our parents, students and staff are fed up and angry – ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!

Please see below and join us on Tuesday, August 31st,at 7:30 PM to send a message to the community and the media that we will not stand for this senseless violence near our schools anymore!
