Joint Message from the Regional Superintendents

June 3, 2020

 

Dear Watchung Hills Regional School Communities,

 

We have been confronted with an unprecedented global pandemic that has impacted our lives and our livelihoods.  We are now confronted with acts across our nation that are clearly against the values we, as a community, embrace - diversity, equity, and inclusion. Hate, racism, and violence have no place in our community or our nation. As stewards of the ideals of equity, we must be dedicated to developing and sustaining a culture free from bias and inequity.

Leaders and stakeholder groups across our five school districts are working together to provide needed resources and support for our staff and students in order for them to be able to reflect upon recent events, appropriately manage their fear, frustration, and grief, and engage in meaningful dialogue about our civic responsibility to combat racism.  We will continue to work towards this goal over the long-term as valuing diversity, equity, and inclusion is an objective that requires concerted effort and steadfast commitment. It requires actively confronting racism when it occurs as a moral and ethical obligation.

We look forward to continuing to work collaboratively with our communities, confronting challenging realities and actively working to make the world a better place. 

 

Warm regards,
