It has been a challenging and bittersweet week as we celebrate our seniors, some individually and others virtually. We also watched the impact of the ongoing racial injustice in this country and the impact it had on our students.
A letter to the Community from the Ashland Public Schools Administration
Dear APS Families,
Dear APS Families,
As a district we have collaborated to provide you with a collection of resources that can be used to self-reflect and educate in the area of race and racism. There are many resources available and we intend to continue to add to this document. We have created a similar document for our educators so that we are also able to self-reflect, educate ourselves, and continue to integrate race awareness and anti-racism education in our instruction to all students in our district. This week's SEL newsletter, which can be found here is dedicated to providing you with a number of resources you can use to speak with your children about race and racism.
If you have additional resources that you would like to add to this document, please email them to Jen Cutler, email@example.com.
In honor of what would have been Class Day the Senior Slideshow is being streamed on the WACA education page at 11am, 6pm, and 9:30pm all weekend. We are so grateful to WACA for their support during this time and helping us connect with and celebrate our students.

We are looking forward to the Class of 2020 procession on Sunday, June 7 at 11am. The cars will leave from AHS and process past each school building in this order: Mindess, middle school, Warren, and Pittaway before circling the high school to finish. The map of the procession can be found here. The community is welcome to line the route and cheer for the students.

Have a wonderful weekend.
