Tuesday, February 19th, we will host a parent meeting at 6:30 pm in the gym to discuss supports for our students regarding the recent incident involving a staff member. We understand that this incident has caused many concerns. We want to work together as a community to help one another so we can begin to heal and support the well being of every student.
During this meeting, we will also discuss our plan for middle school math for the rest of the school year. While there will be some adjustments to be made, our middle school staff along with Ms. Alvarez and I, do not feel a substitute is the correct course of action for the students.
At our meeting, we will have representatives from central office departments, Student Protections and Title IX Department, Health and Wellness, as well as a representative from the Children’s Advocacy Center.
In addition to these presentations, we will have time for questions. Please keep in mind, we are not able to answer questions specific to the investigation as it is an active ongoing investigation. Please know that we will try to answer all of your questions and if we are not able to do so during the meeting we will get back to you as soon as we have an answer.
I want to thank the members of our community who have reached out to support our students and staff during this incredibly difficult time. From providing the staff with lunch to emails and phone calls with encouraging words, these acts of kindness and compassion helped our school community through this past week. Even though I was away assisting my elderly parents, I was available and in contact with Ms. Alvarez, Network Chief, central office departments, LSC and several members of the school community, to ensure we were doing everything we could for our students.
While this has been a week filled with so many emotions, I know we will move forward knowing we have a community that is actively engaged, supportive and working alongside us.
As always, if you are unable to attend this meeting, please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
