From the Principal:

I understand that there are concerns about some inappropriate behaviors being experienced before school this week. The information that I have received from families indicates that concerns have resulted in rumors about the extent of the behavior. The problem with rumors is that they often become embellished. Such is the case in this instance. There was a elementary classroom tool used inappropriately outside by one student new to our community. As with any instance of inappropriate behavior, steps have been taken to correct the behavior.

We have had an exceptionally higher number of students join our community this fall, and are continuing to work on teaching EES expectations. As students become more comfortable, they will test limits of their environment, which can result in behaviors that are unacceptable. We working to insure that all are aware of the kind of safe, inclusive environment and climate we want for all children. We appreciate the support of all of our parents as we continue the important work of developing appropriate social skills for our community.

Thank you for your understanding,

Dr. Mathias
