Board of School Directors approves anti-Asian hate statement

posted Apr 6, 2021, 5:21 AM by Tara Parr   [ updated Apr 6, 2021, 5:43 AM ]

The following anti-Asian hate statement was approved by the Perkiomen Valley Board of School Directors on April 5, 2021:

Perkiomen Valley School District’s mission is to cultivate an inclusive community of learners empowered to grow intellectually, socially, and emotionally.  Since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic just over a year ago, there has been an alarming increase in racist incidents targeting members of the Asian American community.  The Board of Directors of the Perkiomen Valley School District categorically condemn any act of discrimination or violence against any person.  We cannot be silent as we see the increase in violent and racist incidents toward Asian Americans. As a school district, we must continue the work of combatting all harassment and discrimination, keeping the recent vulnerability of the Asian American community in mind. We encourage any student or family in our PV community who feels victimized to reach out for support and we welcome any suggestions for how to better support our Asian American students. Our aim is to continue taking steps to ensure a safe, secure, and welcoming environment for our students, our staff, and our community. 

We will remain vigilant and stand firmly against ignorance, hate, and racism. 

We will remain steadfast in our commitment to embracing diversity, equity, and inclusion. 

We hope you will join us in this ongoing work.

20-21 Instructional Calendar - revised

posted Mar 18, 2021, 9:13 AM by Tara Parr   [ updated Mar 18, 2021, 9:19 AM ]

The 20-21 Instructional Calendar has been revised to reflect the removal of one (of our three) built-in snow day.   As of today (March 17), we have used two of the three built-in days.  We do not anticipate the use of the third snow day as we have been shifting to virtual learning if needed for inclement weather.  The last student day is now scheduled for Friday, June 18, 2021.
