Statement by EMUU and SSD Board Chairs Regarding Recent Hateful Events in Community

There have been a couple of disturbing events in our community recently - graffiti on the grounds of Morristown schools and reports of racist slurs in Stowe.  Both the EMUU and Stowe School Boards condemn these incidents and all acts of hatred, bigotry, anti-Semitism, racism and intolerance of any kind.  We are committed to supporting our students, schools and community in sustaining a civil environment that is welcoming and respectful to all.  We and the educators in our schools will continue to be vocal advocates for equality, understanding and respect and do everything in our power to better support students and families from all walks of life.
