Dear Parents and Guardians,
I wanted to let you know that today has been a calm and typical day for our Chatham Park students. Our faculty and staff did not initiate discussion about Friday’s events. We responded privately to students’ individual comments or questions, which have occurred mostly at the upper grades and which have been appropriate and thoughtful. Your children have been engaged in their learning, in their friendships, and in their school day. They are talking about the holidays and their plans for winter break. Thank you for limiting the media coverage, for following your good instincts about discussion within your families, for being in touch with us about individual questions and concerns, and for entrusting us with your children. It is our great privilege to teach them.
