Dear Farmington Families:
I'm saddened to share with you that on Wednesday, March 8th, racist and derogatory notes were found in a student locker at Riverview Elementary School. Our administrators are currently investigating the source of the notes and will take disciplinary action according to our policies.
As a school district and community, we take these matters extremely seriously. I want to share with you my personal commitment to creating safe and respectful schools for each of your children. Racist words and behaviors will not be tolerated. Tomorrow, Principal Grengs and the school counselor will address this incident with students at Riverview Elementary.
This incident impacts our whole community and we recognize that there is a greater conversation to be had. In coming weeks we will engage all of our schools in this work. Thank you for your understanding and continued support.
Jay Haugen, Superintendent
Farmington Area Public Schools
