Message to School Community / Mensaje a la Comunidad de la Escuela

Message to our friends and family, to our community, to our staff, and, most importantly, to our students and parents who look to us for leadership and guidance.

The racism and systemic oppression that has marginalized minority groups has gone on for far too long. We too are angry and scared over the brutality on black lives and the racial injustice that persists in our country, and the world.

As a school we have committed ourselves to helping students re-imagine a world filled with equality and justice.

We stand in solidarity with the Black community, and we urge for us to band together during these uncertain times.

We encourage you to have discussions and to check in with your students, so they too can process the ongoing events.

Feel free to reach out to us for support.
