Superintendent’s Message

May 31, 2020

 

We, like many of you, are appalled at the blatant disregard for life shown in Minneapolis. Our hearts ache for the family of Mr. George Floyd.  We can’t imagine the immense grief, sorrow, and outrage they are feeling.

 

We too, find ourselves looking for answers in the midst of deep sorrow. How can such injustices occur? What can we do to address the root cause of racism and senseless violence? One thing is clear, we cannot and should not become desensitized to injustice and wrongdoing. We embrace our responsibility as a school district to continue to educate our students, staff and community about the issue of racial inequity. As a nation, we can, and must do better.

 

As a school community, we are committed to respect, equity and justice for all people.  We believe in teaching the fundamental dignity due to all and the responsibility for every member of society to treat all people with love for our shared humanity and deep appreciation for the diversity that enriches us all.  We know that change must begin with each of us. We stand in solidarity against acts of racism and inequitable treatment. Let us be a community defined by our respect for one another and our solidarity.   

Thank you, 

Linda Kaminski, Ed.D.
Superintendent


Mensaje de la Superintendente

Nosotros, como muchos de ustedes, estamos horrorizados por el evidente desprecio a la vida que se muestra en la ciudad de Minneapolis. Nuestros corazones están con dolor por la familia del Sr. George Floyd. No podemos imaginar la inmensa pena e indignación que sus familiares sienten. 

Nosotros también nos encontramos buscando respuestas en medio de este profundo dolor. ¿Cómo pueden ocurrir tales injusticias? ¿Qué podemos hacer para abordar la causa fundamental del racismo y la violencia sin sentido? Una cosa está en claro, no podemos y no debemos volvernos insensibles a la injusticia y al delito. Aceptamos nuestra responsabilidad como distrito escolar, continuando y educando a nuestros estudiantes, al personal y a la comunidad sobre el tema de la injusticia racial. Como nación, podemos y debemos de hacerlo mucho mejor.

Como comunidad escolar, estamos comprometidos con el respeto, la igualdad y la justicia para todas las personas. Creemos en enseñar lo importante que es la dignidad para todos, la responsabilidad de cada miembro de la sociedad es de tratar a todas las personas con amor, compartirlo con toda la humanidad y demostrar un profundo aprecio por la diversidad que nos enriquece a todos. Sabemos que el cambio debe comenzar con cada uno de nosotros. Nos solidarizamos en contra del trato injusto y racismo social. Seamos una comunidad solidaria, demostrando nuestro respeto a nuestros semejantes. 

Atentamente, 

Linda Kaminski, Ed. D
