Dear Panther Community,

I am trying to find the words to express the varying emotions I have experienced across this past week. I cried when I first saw the video of an officer kneeling on the neck of George Floyd. Every time I see the video, I feel a pain that cuts very deeply. It is disheartening, frustrating, and saddening. I am also saddened by the violence, rioting and looting within and outside of our city. These behaviors overshadow the peaceful meassage of protesters marching to impact change, and that is very unfortunate.

I am still trying to process everything, and I know many in our school community are as well. Lil Panthers, some of you may be feeling hurt, angry, confused, and fearful. We love you, and are here to support you. If you need to talk someone, please reach out to me or your grade level admin and we will connect you with an adult.

As a Brewer community, we have been committed to authentic, open conversations around race equity, and we will continue to do so. If you are interested in engaging in such discussions, we welcome your participation when those opportunities are announced. Collectively we can do our small part to contribute to larger systemic change.

I have attached a poignant communication from Superintendent Dr. Kyla Johnson-Trammell. I find it a worthy read.

In Solidarity,

Principal Layne
