AN IMPORTANT MESSAGE FROM PRINCIPAL BRENDA PACHECO…

Today, School of the Art and the Rochester City School District observed Black Lives Matter in Schools: A Day of Understanding and Affirmation. This initiative is not part of the national Black Lives Matter Movement, but rather an opportunity to begin an important dialogue, take positive action steps to foster understanding, and strengthen our school communities.

Earlier today, there was incorrect information posted on various social media sites alleging that SOTA would not participate in Black Lives Matter at School today. To the contrary, special curriculum was written to help students understand and support each other. Meaningful and open discussions occurred in many classrooms today.  School of the Arts enthusiastically set aside this entire day to educate and affirm black lives.  

At 2:00 PM today, members of the student body, faculty, and staff gathered in the SOTA lobby. They peacefully and respectfully assembled to express their solidarity for black lives. The SOTA administration, faculty and staff support our students 100%. 

It is heartbreakingly sad that rumors of discipline, retribution and tyranny began in the first place.  No one at SOTA would ever prevent our children from constructively and safely finding their voice and speaking their truth during this day of understanding, affirmation and education. School of the Arts stand firmly behind its mission of student success… academic, artistic and humanistic. May we always remember that We are School of the Arts!

Sincerely,
Brenda Pacheco
Principal
