June is LGBTQ+ Pride Month

Pride Month
 
Join us in recognizing and celebrating LGBTQ+ Pride Month! 
 
We want to express our school district’s appreciation and support of our LGBTQ+ students, staff, community members and allies. We see you and we stand with you.
 
LGBTQ+ Pride Month is celebrated each June to honor the 1969 Stonewall riots in New York City, an uprising to resist the police harassment and persecution to which the LGBTQ+ community was commonly subjected. This marked the beginning of a movement to outlaw discriminatory laws and practices against people who identify as LGBTQ+.
 
While our nation has made progress in that path to equality, we recognize there is much more work to do to achieve equality for our LGBTQ+ community. We are proudly raising Pride Flags at each of our schools and district office this month and we invite you to join us this month in reaffirming our support for our LGBTQ+ students, families and community and recognizing their vast contributions to society.
