Message to DVS Students & Families
Dear DVS Students and Parents,
We write this email to you on a day that is filled with grief, anxiety, pain and unrest that our local and national communities are feeling in the wake of the recent killings of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and Ahmaud Arbery. These injustices, which highlight systemic problems in our society that must be faced, happen amidst the backdrop of a global pandemic that prevents us from being on campus together.
Our entire DVS community is likely to be affected and experiencing a range of emotions about all that is going on. Know that whatever you are feeling, it is okay and that your DVS teachers, counselors, academic coaches and school leaders are here to support you in any way we can. We encourage you to reach out to us if there is any way that we can be of help in this tremendously difficult time. Please know that you are valued and appreciated. We wish you a safe, healthy, and peaceful week.
Steve, Grace, & the entire DVS staff
