Message from Your District Leadership-June 3, 2020

Dear School District Family and Fairbanks Community, Events of this past week, fueled by the atrocity of George Floyd’s death, have consumed me. I find it very difficult to capture in words my thoughts about the unfathomable acts of bigotry, racism, cowardice and the lack of leadership. I’ve boomeranged back and forth between horror, guilt, anger, incredulousness, passion, sorrow, empathy, helplessness, heartbreak, and fear. I’ve reached out to co-workers, friends, and family close to home and across the country to hear their stories. I try to understand.
