Statement from Superintendent Austin Beutner

The following is an excerpt from a statement from the Superintendent

Today we should be in a classroom helping students process all that is happening around us. The killing of George Floyd, a handcuffed, unarmed Black man in Minneapolis, is wrong and it shocks the senses. There are no words to express the pain, the helplessness and the anger many of us are feeling. My heart goes out to Black children who have been trying to process this in a home which may be dealing with the disproportionate impact COVID-19 is having on the Black community in health impacts and job losses
