PRINCIPAL'S CORNER

Dear Parents,

Our pledge in support of Black Lives Matter:

Is it enough to say we support the movement?  What is our obligation as a school to effect change? What is our obligation to you, the parents, the students, ourselves?

There must be a clear understanding of the issues and the harm caused by racism and racial violence.  We must reaffirm that real change has not taken place in our country and that we can’t be lulled into complacency.  As a school, it will be our responsibility to confirm that our students have the power to effect change.  Many have taken the first steps by peacefully demonstrating. We will encourage them to register to vote.

We will open the school year addressing the ill effects of the pandemic and the pervasive racism that still exists in our society.  We need to discuss the conditions that have contributed to the disproportionate deaths among African-Americans during the pandemic.  Conditions that force people to live in densely populated areas, work hard for meager wages and inadequate health care, and thwarts upward mobility.  We must paint a clear picture of the inequities in education, employment and housing that contribute to a separate and unequal society.

We will ask our students to use their voices, not just for discussions on race, but to insist that discriminatory laws written and unwritten are changed and new policies are enacted to eradicate systemic racism.  We believe in our students and that their compassion and empathy for all people will be the prescription for a better nation.

We will continue to provide an environment that welcomes all students.  A place where they can succeed and be prepared to help make the changes needed to make this a better country.

You should be proud as parents to know that our students are so accepting of everyone who walks through our door.  We have always been proud of this culture of acceptance. Our students do not make distinctions between race, gender or gender identification.  They set the example for us as adults. We will learn from them.

Our students deserve a better country that embraces their compassion, tolerance and unequivocal acceptance.

WELCOME TO JVL WILDCAT!
