In the aftermath of the murder of George Floyd among many others, The Hawbridge School reaffirms our mission to build relationships based on mutual honor and respect. The Hawbridge School community disavows all acts of violence and racism because we acknowledge that Black Lives Matter. We acknowledge the racial disparities found within the institution of education. The Hawbridge School community commits to a diverse, all-inclusive environment that stands firmly and loudly against racism.
We will stand by our black families and students to ensure all students receive an education that allows them to achieve their dreams. We will continue the fight towards racial equality and social justice. We are committed to providing equitable access to rigorous curriculum. We will adhere to our disciplinary procedures to ensure that students are treated with equity and fairness. We will continue to seek out education for our faculty and staff members on anti-racist practices in the classroom. We are committed to providing a safe place for marginalized students and their families to express themselves. We will work towards a community where all students are included and accepted.
We love our students equally, and we expect the world to do the same. Until then, we won’t rest.
