MHS Community Message: June 2, 20206/3/2020
Dear Madison Family,
Madison is a Community that Respects each other and Education through Equity in order to honor and empower our Diverse population. This spring has been challenging due to the Coronavirus/COVID-19 which has affected all of us. More recently we have witnessed the acts of violence and misuse of power that took the lives of Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, and George Floyd.
At Madison, we are outraged by this systemic abuse towards members of the African American community. Whatever you are feeling right now - overwhelmed, mourning, afraid, full of despair, and looking for hope and answers - it is a real response. We believe that you are valuable, important, and brilliant. We stand in solidarity with African American students, families, and staff while remaining committed to diversity and respect.
We are aware that this is more than a moment in time. We acknowledge that this is an ongoing process as we seek to dismantle systematic racism.
We acknowledge that racism is ever present in America and the impacts continue to be deadly. Let’s consider how we can collectively work together to create cross-racial collaboration to ensure that the tragedies do not continue again and again. As we continue to process these events, Madison staff is here to provide support to process the impact of these repeated tragic events. Please feel free to reach out to Madison staff for support.
