STAMFORD, Conn. -- Mike Duggan, executive director of Domus Kids, which operates Stamford Academy, released the following statement regarding Thursday's attack on a Stamford teen by a group of teens described by police as wearing Stamford Academy sweatshirts.
We have been made aware of Thursday’s incident; if our students were in fact involved, we are very disappointed because it is in direct conflict with the principles we teach and model.
We will continue to work with our students to equip them with the skills to make better decisions and will continue to push for improvements in the mental health care system to help those who struggle with this issue.
We ask that any Stamford Academy youth involved in this incident or with knowledge of this incident either turn themselves in to the police and take responsibility for their actions or contact Stamford Academy school leadership to help the police solve this case. We apologize and are very sorry this happened.
