The recent mass shootings in Georgia and Colorado are heartbreaking and can surface fears about safety especially as we begin to return to more areas in our communities and gather in larger groups. We want to assure you that Evergreen School District is committed to the safety of our schools and continues to take measures to ensure that our return to in-person efforts considers security in addition to following the state and local health guidelines.
The increase in violence and discrimination targeting people of Asian descent is an important reminder of the continued work needed to make sure our community is safe and inclusive of all people. We know events like these can impact the physical and mental well-being of our students, staff, and families. We encourage you to connect with your friends and family and support each other and seek help as it is needed.
