Thankful for EHS Students and Staff

Dear Parents,

I wanted you to know that we are well at EHS and are thankful for each other.   During a very stressful time for our community, our students and staff are doing what we do best:  caring for each other.  I know many emotions are rising to the surface right now.  I also know that my story is my story, and your story is your story.  We owe it to each other to value one another's stories and to genuinely seek to understand them. 

The death of Mike Brown and the subsequent grand jury decision has caused a high level of anxiety,  and many "what if" questions have come up from students and parents.  It is impossible to play out every scenario; however, there are some things I know for sure:

  • Current events are on students' minds and they may want and/or need to talk.
    • Our counselors and administrators will be available to talk to students if they need someone to talk to.
  • It will come up as a topic in some classrooms. 
    • Student voices should be valued within the context of the educational process.
    • Being understanding of everyone's feelings and emotions is extremely important.  There must be respect for everyone at all times.
    • Conversations should promote healing and not increase frustration and/or anxiety.
  • Supervision of students will continue.
    • Student safety continues to be the highest priority.
    • Decisions regarding school activities will be made as proactively as possible based on the most current information.

We, as a faculty, set the tone for our school.  Our response will be one of care and support for all of our students.  In the immediate future we have one job in our school: to provide a safe environment for all no matter where their (or our) beliefs fall.  To accomplish this, we will stay up to date with the current news and be proactive in ensuring a safe environment.

Regardless of what transpires in our community at large, or regardless of our personal opinions, it is our duty to ensure that EHS continues to be a safe haven and sanctuary for all.

 

Sincerely,

Deborah D. Asher, Ed.S.
