A Message From Edmonds School District’s EAACH (Equity Alliance for Achievement)

Dear Edmonds School District Community, 

EAACH believes that Black Lives Matter, and we stand in solidarity with our Black students, families, staff, administration and community.  

We call on our Edmonds School District community at all levels to speak up and speak out about racial injustice, to take action and support one another. We must make our schools and our homes places where racism is unwelcome; we must make empathy, acceptance, and love our common, guiding values.

Our District has committed to a Race and Equity Policy, and Black Lives Matter Resolution—and we will continue to build on the work to hold our system accountable.  We believe this work is critical and invite you to join us as a community-led collective of students, families, teachers and administrators.

Recognizing That Many are Experiencing Stress and Trauma at This Time, 

Please find districts mental health resources available here: Link

In Love and Solidarity,
Your EAACH Leadership Team

Edmonds School District Superintendent, Dr. Kris McDuffy, sent the email below to all Edmonds School District Families on June 1 and we want to put it here, again.

Dear Edmonds School District families and staff,

I write to you this evening with a broken and heavy heart. I want to acknowledge the senseless killing of George Floyd by police officers in Minneapolis and the events that have since followed. It is undoubtedly weighing heavily on all of us and leaving many of us, including myself, without the words to express the deep and painful feelings we are experiencing.

Specifically, to our Black students, families and staff - I want you to know that we SEE you, we VALUE you and we STAND WITH you. 

The district is committed to supporting students and families as we navigate the persistent racism and aggression against Black people. We will continue the work to seek to understand how these tragedies continue to happen and what can be done to prevent them from occurring in the future. We will continue to make efforts and collectively embrace hope through our equity policy, our Black Lives Matter resolution, and our commitment to student, staff and family voice. 

We know many of you are overwhelmed right now. Please know you are not alone. Even as we must be physically distant from each other, please reach out to those who may need your support and compassion during this time. 

We hope the list of resources below can help students, families and staff have necessary conversations about race:

Stay healthy, stay strong!

With my deepest respect and gratitude for our community,

Dr. Kristine McDuffy
Superintendent
