Mr. Brian Rucinski
TF North Family,
I’m writing in response to recent events that have brought renewed attention to social injustices that still exist in our nation. Unfortunately, these events are not isolated, and happen all too often.
To me, the recent senseless killings of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and Rayshard Brooks serve as a reminder of the racism, whether blatant or subtle, that many of our African American students and families endure on a daily basis. I want everyone to know that we will continue to work as a school to rid our building of racist acts, words, or policies.
I have been so fortunate to be a part of this community as a teacher, coach, assistant principal, and principal for the past 18 years and I know that positive changes will only happen by working together with our students, staff, and community members.
Please do not hesitate to reach out to me if you would like to discuss concerns or offer ideas to bring positive changes to our school and community.
