We are immensely proud of our students.
Today, they expressed the need to reflect on weekend events on the Northside and subequent events that led to the shutdown of the interstate last evening. We accommodated this request and gave our students space in the gym during 7th hour to gather, share and process as a community. Faculty and staff were present to observe. But, this time belonged to our students. Their conduct was admirable.
Honoring the needs of our students, as socially aware citizens and self-aware young people, is of the utmost importance to their intellectual and emotional growth. We are honored they trusted us to ask for the time. It was our privilege to give it to them.
