CCHS Racial Incident
February 10, 2021
Tonight, I write to share information communicated by CCHS Principal Mastrullo earlier this afternoon about a racist incident that occurred at CCHS yesterday and was reported to us today. Mr. Mastrullo’s letter is posted here. As stated in his letter, we will not tolerate actions that make school an unsafe place, physically or emotionally, for any students.
The district has very actively continued its work in anti-racism and cultural competency. This work has been a top priority this year. Regular updates have been a focus at an ongoing series of Joint School Committees. All of those presentations are recorded and posted on the Cultural Competency and Anti-Racism school webpage.
Also of great importance is the opportunity for families to talk with young people about these types of events. We held a webinar last spring about talking to children about race which is linked below:

Our schools must be inclusive, welcoming, accepting environments. Thank you for partnering with us to accept nothing less.
