A Message from Superintendent Roland Doig

There are simply no words that can fully express how many of us feel following the tragic incident that took place in Buffalo, NY, on Saturday. As parents and caregivers, you are likely saddened, frustrated, and concerned about the safety of your children. We are living in a challenging time for which we do not have all the answers. I am encouraged, however, by the strength and resolve of this community—particularly our students, who are demonstrating that in the face of adversity, we can unite as one to find ways to prevent such hatred and violence from spreading.
 
Please understand the safety and wellbeing of all our students are a top priority. And we remain committed to working with you on our shared goal of providing students with the tools necessary to succeed in a safe, inclusive environment.
 
Thank you for your patience and understanding as we work to get through this difficult time together.

A Message from Board President Mary Haskell

We are deeply saddened by the tragic, racially motivated hate crime that took place in Buffalo, New York. While our thoughts have remained with the victims, their grieving families, and community members in Buffalo, our priority at home has been ensuring the safety and wellbeing of our students, faculty, and staff. We have enhanced existing measures to protect those in our care, including expanding mental health support services, increasing law enforcement presence, and maintaining a lock-out protocol.
 
These violent events are occurring too frequently around our nation. We are at a critical point that demands urgency: We must work together to address this crisis and prevent such hatred and violence from spreading. We recognize and take seriously our role in helping to produce upstanding citizens—which begins with maintaining a safe learning environment for our children. We will continue to focus on the needs of our students, and we encourage you to contact us with any questions or concerns.
