Dear North Babylon School Community,
Earlier today, I was made aware of an inappropriate social media post made by an employee from our high school on a personal Facebook page. As this is a matter of personnel, the district is prohibited from sharing any additional information, which I realize might be frustrating to some. While all employees have a right to free speech, the sentiments shared in the post are not aligned with our district’s core values, nor do they represent the spirit of tolerance and understanding that we try to instill in our own students.
I know what occurred in our nation’s capital two days ago is frightening and upsetting however, we must lead by example in our own words and actions and demonstrate to students respect and support for one another, even in the face of what differences we may have.
As always, I thank you for your continued partnership and support and wish you a safe weekend ahead.
