A Massachusetts school created "safe spaces" for its students following the verdicts in the cases of Kyle Rittenhouse and Ahmaud Arbery.
Bigelow Middle School announced the creation of three "safe spaces," including one for "students of color," in a Dec. 1 letter.
Parents of students are encouraged to discuss "safe space" options with students, according to the letter.

Students at the Newton, Massachusetts, middle school were given the choice of replacing their advisory period for time in a "safe space," according to a report.
"Reactions to Verdicts: Hearing and learning from peers," "Rumor Control Room: Facts presented in cases, today's laws and final verdicts," and "Questions & Discussion for Students of Color" are the options.
The trials and verdicts of the two cases were "both sensitive topics with many layers of political, racial and social concerns," according to the letter sent to the community.
"Regardless of those concerns, the Kyle Rittenhouse conclusion will likely be seen as yet another unfair reality for many Bigelow families, staff and students — particularly our community members of color, while the Ahmaud Arbery conclusion may be seen as a glimpse of hope and justice," it read.
Rittenhouse was found not guilty on all charges in the homicide trial against him on Nov. 19. He said his actions, which led to his trial, were necessary for his self-defense.
Travis McMichael, Greg McMichael, and William Bryan were all found guilty of felony murder on Nov. 24 in the case of Ahmaud Arbery.
The principal said addressing the cases is a responsibility of the school.

"Bigelow has a responsibility to address the impact of both situations, and to make sure that you as students are educated on real-world topics to prepare you for life after Bigelow," said Bigelow Middle School Principal Chassity Coston.
