    Dear Wilson Family,

    In light of the recent events nationwide and right here in our own city, I would like you to know that the safety of our Wilson scholars and their families is of utmost importance to us. News broadcasts as well as social media has captured the despair felt across our nation over the tragic loss of George Floyd. Please know that through these harsh and uncertain times, we at Wilson stand together with you as one loving and supporting family.

    If you feel the need to speak with a caring adult, please reach out to your teachers, counselor, social worker, or administrator. Staff members will provide time today to listen to your story and/or concerns. There is also a district hotline available to speak with a counselor at 262-8700. For additional information with regard to social and emotional supports, please go to the district website at RCSDk12/together.

    Parents, we commend you on your tireless efforts in supporting your child's education during these difficult times.

    I can be reached directly at
