Resources for Parents

UNITY IN HAND

As a school and district, we are committed to actively contributing to the healing and repair that is desperately needed in response to systemic racism. We strive to be a safe and inclusive community, which means we must disrupt racism and support our Black and African American students and families, as well as our community of color, and all members of our community. We have appreciated the partnership of parents during distance learning and as it concludes this week, we know there are critical conversations still to be had and much to be learned in the days and weeks ahead. As we all continue to learn our way forward, we hope for peace and safety for all, we watch for opportunities to listen and learn, we take action for positive change, and we trust that our future will be brighter than our past if we all work to build it together. Parents play the most important role in shaping their children's lives. We have included here some resources for you, should you need or want them. Thank you for the important role you play in the life of your child and the future of our community and world.
