"Our students have been crying out for support as evidenced by the creation of multiple social media pages that shared student experiences with racism within our building. We have had multiple hate/bias related incidents that have required us to send letters to the community. This has included students in our Chinese community feeling targeted as a result of the pandemic, swastikas and other graffiti representing hate in our community that must be addressed. We must be proactive in every way to teach all of our students of the hurt and harm emotionally these actions cause our community. This is why community engagement at each school is key because the schools cannot combat hate alone. It takes a partnership between the school house, central office and the community to combat.
We need to evaluate how we support school staff and students with creating antiracist and equitable school cultures where all students thrive academically and emotionally."
