Griffith 校长广播全文如下:

“Good Afternoon Ladue High School Community:

In light of the recent election and the weekend ahead, I felt it important that we take this opportunity to reaffirm who we are, and what we stand for as a larger community.

1201 South Warson is one of the few places that we have an opportunity to learn, laugh, study, and work together.  You may be surprised to learn that we are one of the most diverse school districts in the state of Missouri.  This diversity–racial, ethnic, and economic–is a source of our strength.  It is what makes us who we are.

At the same time, the larger issues of social inequality, systemic and institutionalized racism that are impacting our nation—impact us in a very direct and meaningful way.

Regardless of your political ideology, we embrace one another’s race and ethnicity.  We embrace one another’s family background, heritage, language, culture, and gender identity.

We embrace one another because it is a core value of our humanity.  We are one school.  We are one community.

 Today, over the weekend and when you return to school, I encourage you to be kind and caring towards one another.  We cannot change the world, but we can control our own actions, and how we choose to treat our fellow students.

 In the words of Dr. King, “the arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends towards justice.”

We will protect and take care of each other.  We will work towards justice.  We will stand as one community.

 Thank you”

Ladue School District open letter to parents and guardians
Ladue 学区致家长和监护人公开信

“Dear Parents and Guardians,

While it is unusual for the district to comment on specific incidences involving students, something happened on a bus yesterday that has received significant social media attention, and we felt it was important for parents to know that this issue has been addressed.

Two students used inappropriate, racially offensive, language in reference to the presidential election that was upsetting to students who were riding the bus.  An investigation into the event began first thing this morning.  The students involved were identified, interviewed, and immediately disciplined according to school policies and procedures, including parent notification.

We all know that students learn best in an environment that is safe and welcoming.  We have been having a lot of conversations today – with students, with staff, and with you – to ensure there is clear understanding that intolerance does not have a place in the Ladue School District.

Thank you for your interest in the emotional and physical well being of our Ladue Schools family.  As Dr. Jahnke mentioned in her earlier message, it has been a long, eventful week and we wish you the best for a restful, relaxing weekend with your family.

Susan Downing
Communication Director”
