(May 31, 2020) The Rochester City School District cares about how students, families, and staff are coping with recent acts of violence across the country and here in the City of Rochester.
The world has been watching since the tragic death of George Floyd in Minneapolis, Minnesota on May 25, 2020. While many people have expressed their right to protest in response to Floyd’s death, some of those protests turned to violence including right here in Rochester.
The District understands that these violent acts are traumatizing for many, especially with the added stress of the COVID-19 pandemic. The District is committed to providing the social-emotional supports needed during this time.
We encourage you to visit www.rcsdk12.org/together to view the information and resources available to students and families. The District also encourages you to view a message from Superintendent Lesli Myers-Small.
Superintendent Myers-Small would also like to thank community members who participated in clean-up efforts across the City of Rochester on Sunday, May 31, 2020. She said, “It shows we are RCSD together, and we will support one another in times of difficulty. Please know that we are in this together.”
