Dear Santa Fe Public Schools Community,
many, the 2016 election has been an extraordinarily emotional
experience. People across our country and the world are excited about
the presidential outcome, while others are feeling anxiety and fear.
Here in the Santa Fe Public Schools, this election has not changed our
beliefs, values or expectations.
Our District stands together with our families. We
believe in creating school communities that demonstrate unconditional
regard and respect for everyone. We are called upon to be compassionate
and respectful of others and to reflect on our own feelings; to provide
support to those who are experiencing high levels of stress and trauma;
to create school communities that are welcoming, predictable, and safe.
We know that in order for our students to achieve their potential,
schools must continue to keep the focus on teaching and learning while
ensuring that our students feel safe, secure, and welcomed.
