Dear SSD Community,
On Tuesday, a shooting in Atlanta resulted in the deaths of eight people, including six Asian women. The dialogue that has emerged across the country in response to this event has brought greater awareness to the ongoing escalation of hate crimes and racial discrimination impacting Asian and Pacific Islanders throughout our nation. Our district stands in solidarity with our Asian and Pacific Islander students, staff, families, and community members.
The Sherwood School District believes that all students and staff have the right to learn and work in environments free from the threat of physical, mental, or emotional harm — including harm resulting from impacts of racial violence, harassment, and discrimination. We stand firm in our commitment towards creating such environments for all members of our Sherwood School District community, guided by our district’s Board-adopted Anti-Racism Resolution.
For those students, staff, or family members in need of additional support at this time, please visit our Mental Health website at https://sherwood.k12.or.us/departments/health-services/mental-health/.
