Dear Families & Staff,

The news of the Israel-Hamas war has caused great concern among staff, students, and families. Many in our diverse community are directly or indirectly affected by this conflict; our hearts are with them. Even for those not directly affected, pervasive media coverage broadens the impact.

Some children may struggle to understand and express their feelings about what they are seeing and hearing. We urge you to be cautious and closely monitor your child’s social media activity on channels that might be flooded with violent images.

Here are some resources to use at home as you seek ways to discuss violence and war with your children:

During these times, it's important to remember that we are here to support our students and each other. Students may reach out to their classroom teachers and/or our Student Services Team, which is staffed by trained mental health providers.


Dr. Zipporah Hightower
