March 19, 2021 - Over the past several days, many of our students have shared with us their pain and expressed their fears over recent increases in violence directed toward our nation’s Asian community. Our hearts break with theirs as we witness the destructive forces of hate and fear directed toward anyone, especially when based on race or culture. We want our students and staff to know we stand with them; and to hear us clearly condemn behavior of any kind that seeks to harm, intimidate or tear down another. It is not, nor ever will be, acceptable. It won’t be tolerated, we will act quickly against evidence of it, and we will continue to work every day to build school communities within the greater community where mutual respect, understanding and value is the standard.
