 Dear Community,

I have two elementary school aged sons. My wife and I are planning to use the upcoming Presidential Inauguration on Friday as a teachable moment for our boys. I anticipate they will have questions that I can answer, and I know they will pose questions that I lack answers to. My hope is to use the week as an opportunity to talk to my sons about the importance of our democracy and for all of us to be engaged, ask tough questions, and to think critically. I’ll also remind them that it is our differences that should bind us as a society and not divide us.

On Friday, we will have normal school hours with our staff prepared to create an atmosphere where our students feel safe and that their voices are being heard. I understand there are community events happening both during school and after school. I want to let you know that for safety reasons, the District is not a sponsor of any of the rallies or other inauguration-related events on Friday. Please encourage your children to stay in school for the entire day.

I know many of our parents and families will face similar questions from their children. I am fully aware that the inauguration will also cause feelings and emotions that I won’t experience, which is why I want to reiterate that our schools, district offices, and sites are and always will be a safe place for you, our students, and their families - regardless of race, religion, gender, sexual orientation, immigration status, or political affiliation. Our board passed a resolution on December 7 to reinforce our position as a safe district.

Our teachers, school staff, and administrators are also prepared to use Friday to spark dialogue where we all can talk about what it means to live in a democratic society, to transition peacefully from one president to the next, and how the Electoral College works. It will also be an opportunity to provide our students with safe spaces to express how they are feeling about the day and their future. You are encouraged to join us in those conversations. You can contact your child’s school for more details about what the teachers and staff are planning.

The foundation and health of our democracy depends on ALL our students and their futures. Tomorrow’s leaders are growing up in our schools today, and it is the responsibility of all of us to make sure our children are prepared to guide our schools, communities, cities, state, and country.

There are a number of resources to help guide and answer the questions and concerns that you may have about the inauguration and its history. We are a full services community schools district, which means we have a number of people and resources in our schools that can help with a variety of questions you and your child may have. Please do not hesitate to reach out to us with any questions or concerns. We are all one community and here to ensure that our children thrive and succeed.

In community,

Matthew Duffy,

Superintendent 


 

 Estimados miembros de la comunidad:

Tengo dos hijos en la escuela primaria y mi esposa y yo estamos planeando usar la ceremonia en la cual el presidente asume el mando este viernes como una oportunidad para enseñarles algo a nuestros hijos. Supongo que ellos tendrán algunas preguntas que podré responder y sé de antemano que carezco de respuestas para ciertas interrogaciones. Lo que espero es poder usar la semana como una oportunidad para conversar con mis hijos sobre la importancia de nuestra democracia y de que todos participemos en esta, además espero que tengamos la posibilidad de hacer preguntas complicadas y de pensar analíticamente. También les recordaré a ellos que nuestras diferencias deberían unirnos formando una sociedad y no dividirnos.

El día viernes, tendremos una jornada de horario escolar regular en que el personal estará preparado para crear una atmósfera en la cual los alumnos se sientan seguros y sientan que se está considerando lo que ellos tienen que decir. Tengo entendido que se realizarán eventos en la comunidad durante el horario escolar y después que las clases hayan concluido.  Deseo informarle  que por razones de seguridad, el Distrito no estará auspiciando ninguna de estas concentraciones ni otros eventos relacionados con la inauguración presidencial el día viernes. Haga el favor de aconsejar a sus hijos que permanezcan en la escuela durante la duración de toda la jornada escolar.

Tengo la certeza de que muchos padres y familias estarán lidiando con situaciones similares con sus hijos. Estoy totalmente consciente que este evento de toma del mando presidencial provocará sentimientos y emociones que yo no comparto, y este es el motivo por el cual deseo reiterar que nuestras escuelas, oficinas del distrito y establecimientos son y serán lugares seguros para usted, para nuestros alumnos y sus familias independientemente de la raza, religión, género, tendencia sexual, estado inmigratorio, o afiliación política. El 7 de diciembre, la Mesa Directiva aprobó una resolución para reforzar nuestra posición de mantener el distrito como un lugar seguro.

Nuestros maestros, el personal escolar y los administradores también estarán preparados este viernes para dialogar entre todos sobre lo que significa vivir en una sociedad democrática, hacer un cambio pacífico de un presidente al otro y cómo funciona el Colegio Electoral.  También será una oportunidad para proporcionar a nuestros alumnos un ambiente seguro en el cual puedan expresar como se están sintiendo en ese día y en relación a su futuro. Le aconsejamos que también participe en estas conversaciones, usted se puede contactar con el personal de la escuela de su hijo/a para informarse con más detalle sobre lo que se está planificando en el establecimiento.

La base y la solidez de nuestra democracia dependen de todos nuestros alumnos y de sus futuros. Los líderes del mañana están desarrollándose hoy en nuestras escuelas y es la responsabilidad de todos nosotros asegurarnos de que nuestros hijos estén preparados para guiar nuestras escuelas, las comunidades, las ciudades, los estados y la nación.

Existen varios recursos que se pueden utilizar para buscar respuestas a las preguntas e inquietudes que usted podría tener sobre la toma de mando presidencial y su historia (inauguration and its history). Este es un distrito que presta servicios completos a la comunidad, lo que significa que contamos con un número de personas y recursos en nuestras escuelas que pueden ayudar con diferentes preguntas que usted y su hijo/a podrían tener.  No dude en contactarse con nosotros en caso de que tuviese alguna pregunta o inquietud.  Todos nosotros formamos parte de una comunidad y estamos aquí para cerciorarnos de que nuestros alumnos sobresalgan y tengan éxito.

Cordialmente y comunitariamente,

Matthew Duffy,

Superintendente

    I am very grateful to this great spell caster who brought my ex husband back to me. This testimony is a true story and my name is renato Sanchez. When i came in contact with this man was also through a testimony written about him and i have also encountered many testimonies about how he has been helping others with their life. To get back with an ex is one of the most inner most feeling many people would love to experience especially as those memories with our ex always cloud our mind when someone else does some of those things our ex used to do. I was a single parent for almost 6 years and though my ex husband was far away from my kids i still wish someday he will return back to me. This spell doctor i encountered known as Doctor UZOYA helped me with my wishes and i am happy to say that i am back with my ex husband and i am very happy sharing the testimony with everyone so that they too can meet this great doctor and solve their problems. I don’t know what others might feel about getting their ex back in their life but i always know there is a blessing in disguise with just a single reconnection with an ex. If you want to successfully get back with your ex, contact this great spell caster at driraborspellcaster@gmail.com you can also call him on +13019098775 and share an awesome testimony too just like me.

    I was having serious relationship problems with my boyfriend and it had resulted in him moving out to his friend’s apartment. Everything got worse because he started going to bars and strip clubs frequently with his friend, getting drunk and passing out. He always threatens me on phone whenever I call him because of all the bad advises that his friend has given him. I really love him and we had been dating for 6 years which gave us a beautiful daughter. I had also lost a lot of money on therapists until I was introduced to Dr. Okaya by a friend whom he helped to marry her childhood boyfriend; this gave me total confidence and strength to get him back. I did all he asked and after 48 hours my boyfriend called me and rushed back home, things just changed between us emotionally. He has a job and stopped drinking and keeping irrelevant friends. It’s a miracle I never believed was possible because I had lost all hope until I found Dr.Okaya. So that’s why I promised to share my testimony all over the universe. All thanks goes to Dr.Okaya for the excessive work that he has done for me. Below is the email address in situation you are undergoing a heart break, and I assure you that as he has done mine for me, he will definitely help you too.

    My name is Mary Silva, I just split up with my boyfriend of 7 years. We were great together, completely in love and talked about marriage and growing old together, we traveled the world together, everyone knows us as a perfect couple, we never fought always laughed together… however the last 2 years have been very difficult. We have been living together for over 5 years but the last 2 years have been a stressful living situation as I had to take in a friend that was in need. I also started my own business which kept me extremely busy. I am completely devastated, hurt, lost and just want him back. I love him completely. We had a few discussions before he left about trying to work things out, and he felt I took him for granted…I had stopped treating him with appreciation and love. I agreed that I have to be more romantic and be an equal partner in the relationship. Over the course of the following days I showed him love and appreciation, treated him like I had done in the past however he still wanted out. he said he needed time and space to figure out what he wants. I told him I would not give up on us but I would give him space that he wanted. he said he still loved me and care a lot about me but was just hurting.i was totally down because i need my man back one day a friend of my introduce me to a spell caster online who lift me up gave me hope and with-in two days after his spell my man who told me he needed space, call me and come back home to me i must say today we are happily married not only married but have two lovely kids all thanks to Dr happy a father and a real spell caster.
