Capitol Event Response from Principal Aronson

Dear Families,

This morning we gathered as a faculty to discuss the attack on the U.S. Capitol Building in Washington D.C. and how best to address all of our students’ varied needs and concerns.

As a school, we encouraged staff, at their discretion, to create a space for all of our students to share their thoughts and feelings regarding this event. In our history classes, teachers taught lessons putting the attack into historical context while providing a civics lesson. The South Human Rights Council also hosted open lunch forums for students and staff. As always, when significant events occur, counselors were available as a support for your students.

Here is a copy of a video that was shared with your students this afternoon.
