This week we saw another incident adding to the increasing Anti-Asian violence reported in the news since the pandemic began a year ago. These frightening and appalling images hit home for many of us because the victims remind us of ourselves, family members, friends, and neighbors. We as a school community respect and value people of all backgrounds and ethnicities. There is no more important work than instilling these values in our students and children. Each one of us can do our part to use this as a teachable moment.
We will continue to monitor how these incidents affect our students, teachers and staff, and our families. We are reaching out to our local police departments for any updated guidance and a review of policies or procedures which we will share with our staff. Finally, we appreciate the collective support of our wonderful community.
