Students at the Rivers School in Weston plan to wear an article of red clothing Tuesday, as the area begins to respond to the explosion at the Boston Marathon.
In a message to the Rivers community, Sam Berger and Ope Olukorede, the co-presidents of the student body, said "As we keep all those affected by this terrible event in our thoughts and prayers, it would be great if we could show our immediate support.''
Erica Chalmers, a junior, said she heard about the idea via social media Monday evening. "I knew at that point that the world was watching how we were going to react,'' Chalmers said. "As students we are responding by saying we are together and we are standing strong.''
