With the General Election season in full swing I wanted to take a moment to share with you a few thoughts about democracy and equity, and our school’s role in it all.
First, if you haven’t already, please exercise your right to vote on Tuesday, Nov. 3. You may visit this website to determine your polling location. We are proud to show service to our community by again opening our Sarah D. Ottiwell Campus as a polling location for voters in precincts 2B and 2C. As a reminder, our school buildings will be fully closed on Tuesday and Wednesday this week.
At Alma, we are proud to have such a vibrant and diverse school community. This diversity of backgrounds and perspectives, along with your positive energy and support, are what make Alma special. As such, we continue to voice our strong support for all of our scholars, families and staff.
In particular, we commit ourselves to celebrating and affirming our immigrant families and Black and Brown scholars, especially at what may be a particularly heightened time. Many of us are concerned about the possibility of civil unrest as the country awaits final results of the presidential election. We stand with you, and are here to help in any way possible.
As we all know, the right to vote has not been equally granted throughout history and many people continue to be disenfranchised. We acknowledge this injustice and work to address it through our voice and our work with our scholars and families.
In the days and weeks to come there may be continued uncertainty. However, our commitment to you and your scholars will remain: To provide a high-quality education that will put your children on the path to college, and to challenge them to be service-minded leaders. We look forward to a future when our scholars are among the inspiring leaders in our community and across the country.
