EOC recognizes this has been a difficult time for many of our community members. Yesterday's verdict is the first small step towards necessary systemic change. We remain steadfast in our commitment to supporting our students and community and their needs at this time and to continue our work of inclusiveness.
As we continue to navigate the various tragedies touching our immediate communities and our country, we at EOC and MN Department of Education want to provide a variety of resources for families and educators if needed. We as a community believe in providing safe spaces for students and staff to process tragedy appropriately within our community. If you or your student need support during this time do not hesitate to reach out to a staff member.
