Dear Families,

The challenges facing the world right now are immense. It can be difficult to know how to broach these topics with your children. This letter contains some ideas for starting these conversations with your child, as well as ways to begin to address the issues of race, equity, and take action in your home everyday.

Message to Our Community FrontierU38

The Towns of Conway, Deerfield, Sunderland, and Whately 

We write to you today from a place of shared grief and pain over the tragic death of Mr. George Floyd. Pain over the tragic events that have transpired in Minneapolis and the many cities and towns across our nation. Pain over this senseless tragedy as we turn our collective attention to the perpetual problem of racial inequalities being amplified by incidences of senseless police brutality in America. We recognize many members of our community are grieving and we offer solace to you all.

4/22/2020 School Closed for Remainder of Year

Dear Families,

Earlier today, Governor Baker announced his decision to close school and continue home learning for the remainder of the school year. I know there are many questions about the impact of this decision on end-of-year activities and what it may look like to return to normalcy. Later this week, I will be sending out an update that will attempt to address some of your questions and that outlines the decisions to come.

I wish everyone good health and happiness during this spring break.

Sincerely,

Darius Modestow, Superintendent
