Statement from the Superintendent of Tenafly Public Schools and the Tenafly Board of Education
Since our last communication, there have been questions raised about the fifth-grade class project. We understand that tensions are running high and that our community is extremely upset. We share those feelings.
We are reviewing all of the facts surrounding this matter and will provide an update this week. In the meantime, we are committed – as always – to cultivating a positive school culture that has no room for hate, prejudice, bias, or oppression. We are proud of our District’s policies regarding diversity, equity, and inclusion and stand by them.
In addition, we are taking extra measures to ensure order at all of the District’s schools this week, so they remain safe and productive learning environments.
