An open letter to the City Schools community

This past week, Baltimore Montessori Public Charter School and the entire Baltimore City Public Schools community suffered a devastating loss. Athumani Brown, a seventh-grade student, passed away tragically after a significant medical event during a field trip. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family and the school community as we mourn and process the loss of a son, a student and a young member of our community.

Since the tragedy, City Schools has been in frequent communication with NorthBay Adventure Camp. NorthBay will conduct a full investigation of this incident and provide its findings to City Schools. North Bay has also committed to conduct an independent review of its emergency protocols to support student safety in any future outdoor education programs.

We thank you for your support of Athumani’s family and Baltimore Montessori Public Charter School during this moment. Through the power of our community, we will honor his memory through our efforts.
