Supporting students through a difficult, emotional time

The recent death of Tony Robinson has prompted important discussion in our community, and in turn, our schools, some of which has been difficult and emotional.

Because we know that students need opportunities to discuss what happened at school, we have provided guidance to our staff on how to lead conversations that allow students to understand what happened, express their feelings, and respectfully consider all perspectives.

In the coming weeks, we know that students will need additional opportunities to process and discuss, particularly when more information around the investigation becomes public. We want our students to be safe, learn how to discuss challenging issues productively, and think about how to make positive change in our community.

By working together as a community, our aim is to proactively support all of our students and keep them engaged in learning throughout the spring.

The CDC has reported an outbreak of measles in the U.S. It is important for you to check your child’s immunization records to make sure he/she has received two doses of MMR vaccine. Measles can spread easily to and from unimmunized children. In addition to being at risk for getting sick if exposed to measles, children with one or zero doses of MMR will not be able to come to school for two weeks if exposed. Learn more.
