We all play a role in ensuring our students feel accepted and supported. Targeting or discriminating against Asian students in connection to COVID-19 is unacceptable and goes against our values of racial equity and social justice. In SPS, we are committed to welcoming, safe, and inclusive schools, and we do not tolerate acts of discrimination.
Please take the time to create a positive environment and support each other. If you or someone you know feels unsafe or has experienced harassment, contact your school or the SPS Student Services department at 509.354.7393, or report the incident on the SPS website.
