Diversity
DIVERSITY lungs


Diversity issues
Diversity issues lungs

Serve all the young people in our district regardless of race, creed, lifestyle, political affiliation, etc.

Make every student and family (and visitor) feel welcome, valued, honored, and respected each and every time they walk through the door.


Religious diversity
Religious diversity lungs

To make sure all students and staff feel welcome and fully included (and to comply with law).

Students have broad 1st Amendment rights to religious expression in school.

Teachers do not.


Students may not harass each other about religion (or anything else.)

Teachers must remain NEUTRAL re: One religion vs. another or religion vs. secularism.

Unconstitutional for teachers to lead prayer or to conspicuously pray with students at school.


Teachers may not use “the Bible says..” statements to defend value or moral statements or as authoritative source on history or science.

“Winter break,” not “Christmas holiday.” No religious symbols.


Religious holidays respected and accommodated. Students should never feel pressured to choose between school attendance & religious observance and should not be made to feel conspicuous for observing the holidays.

None of our students, regardless of religion, are penalized for being absent from school for religious observances.

  • ROSH HASHANAH begins at sundown this year on Sunday, September 16th, the holy days of the holiday will be Monday, September 17th and for some students, Tuesday, September 18th, No work is permitted on Rosh Hashanah.

  • Generally, we do not give major tests on these days, or the day following, as the students will not be able to study. We also discourage using these days as major review days for upcoming tests as this can also put Jewish students at a disadvantage.

  • In general, be sensitive to the fact that observance of these holidays may prevent a student from preparing for things you have planned.


  • YOM KIPPUR should never feel pressured to choose between school attendance & religious observance and should not be made to feel conspicuous for observing the holidays this year will be observed on September 25-26. (Tuesday, sundownthrough Wednesday). Yom Kippur is the most important holiday of the Jewish year. Yom Kippur is a complete rest day, no work can be performed. Like Rosh Hashanah, no work is permitted on Yom Kippur and for this reason, so be aware of what you are scheduling this day and the day or days following.
