Dr. Green & Students“In light of recent events and social media comments, we stand firmly by our original statement that our schools will be safe places for learning and teaching. We are aware that there are National Day Without Immigrants protests planned for Thursday, February 16, across the country. Classroom attendance is essential to student achievement. Therefore, we respectfully ask parents and guardians to make sure your children attend school to benefit from instruction and avoid an unexcused absence. We appreciate the support of our parents and guardians on this matter.”
