Hello Cleveland families,

Our hearts are with the Garfield community tonight and we continue to grieve with the students, staff, families, and community partners who are processing the senseless act of violence they experienced yesterday. Most importantly, we are brokenhearted for the family of the victim. 

Within the Cleveland community today, many of our teachers held space for students in classes to process the incident. Moving forward, we know that we must continue to focus our attention on supporting community and belonging, taking seriously student mental health needs, working with community partners and families, and taking preventative measures whenever possible. 

We hope that you and your family have a safe and restorative weekend.
