Superintendent’s Message

CMS COVID Case and Racial Incident

May 11, 2021

Dear Families:

I have two updates for the community tonight.

 

  • A CMS staff tested positive today while in quarantine so there are no close contacts at school.

 

  • Also at CMS this afternoon, an absolutely unacceptable anti-Asian slur was used toward a student by another student.  Principal Cameron’s letter to the middle school community is found herewhich includes resources to use with children in having these difficult but important conversations.

 

We are deeply committed to an environment where all students feel safe and will not tolerate acts such as this one.  Thank you for joining us in this effort.

Best,

Laurie
