Dear Parents and Guardians,
I wish to make you aware that incidents of racial slurs have been reported to us; these behaviors do not represent who we are. I want to let our community know that here at Bristol-Plymouth, we continue to focus on respectful behavior and positive interaction. Racism, bigotry and hate have no place here. I am asking you as part of our B-P family that you engage your child on the importance of an inclusive, tolerant environment in our school.
At this time, students that were involved in these reported incidents have been disciplined. I want to ensure our B-P community that any future incidents will result in significant consequences in accordance with the student handbook. School must be a place of tolerance, respect and safety for all students.
Throughout the school year we will be having school wide activities to address these issues with the support from the Anti-Defamation League. Activities will support and educate staff and students on issues of racism, intolerance and hate.
In closing, I am confident with your help Bristol-Plymouth will continue to be a place where all students can learn in a safe environment and feel welcomed, respected, valued and supported.
Thank you in advance for your cooperation.
Dr. Alexandre Magalhaes
