Special Message from the. Superintendent

In case you missed it, the following message went out today to families.

Good Afternoon Beverly Parents and Families,

I want to reach out to all of you today and share our sadness and outrage at the horror and injustice surrounding the death of George Floyd. The unrest of this past week has further exposed the truth about racial disparities in our country. 

We in the Beverly schools will work against racism. We are prepared to do the work against bias and stereotype, and work to make all our students and families feel safe and valued. In conjunction with the Human Rights Committee, we stand in unity and support for our friends and colleagues for whom racism is a daily challenge. There is no place in our community for hate. The Beverly Public Schools will continue to embrace our commitment to diversity, equity, inclusion, and anti-racist practices in our effort to break the cycle of racism and other forms of oppression. 

Attached you will find some resources to help you when talking with your child about the events that are going on in the country today. Further anti-racism resources will be available on our website tomorrow.
Thank you,

Sue Charochak
Superintendent of Schools
