and treating each building so if things were to lighten up, we could have attended school. Here’s to hoping we have a smooth finish to January and get through February without any unexpected closures.
Yesterday our nation honored the life’s work and achievements of American civil rights leader Martin Luther King, Jr. As we know he worked to end racial segregation and promote equality. Meridian School District has a commitment to working on multiple areas where we may provide greater support to all students – both within and outside of the classroom. We have identified several areas for equity in the district, in particular, closing learning gaps for students with regard to race, class, gender, ability, sexual identity, gender identity, and language. We have an obligation to position our students to be strong learners, regardless of their backgrounds.
This is a shortened student week. We are finishing the semester this week. Friday is a scheduled student day off and a teacher workday. We will start with the new semester next Monday, January 27th.
Have a great week,
Dr. James Everett, Superintendent
Meridan School District
