    Statement in Response to the Death of George Floyd from the Charlottesville School Board and Superintendent

    May 31, 2020 Dear staff, families, and students — As a School Board and Superintendent, we write today in the midst of national strife as we feel outrage and grief over the senseless loss of George Floyd, the latest Black man to have his life taken by a police officer. Let it be clear, racism and the abuse of power diminish our entire nation and threaten the potential of every Black boy or girl, man and woman. More than reactively condemning these repeated tragedies, we must work to prevent the next one. We are unafraid and prepared to do unprecedented work to push ...

    May 2020 News & Highlights

      A Word from Superintendent Dr. Rosa Atkins  Dear staff, family, and community: It’s official — Charlottesville High School’s “Victory Lap” was triumphant! The drive-through graduation event featured several CHS-related selfie stations (including a mural painted by CHS teacher Nathan Alexander) and a Black Knights spirit station. And it concluded with the graduates walking across the stage with their name read aloud as families watched from the car and nearby teachers and staff cheered. Cars were decorated. Balloons were filled. Cowbells were rung. And, yes, tears were shed. You can find lovely pictures on our social media channels. You can also see it for yourself when our graduation ...

However, I also realized that even in this challenging time, we have a lot of highlights, too!

    February 2020 News and Highlights

    A Word from Superintendent Dr. Rosa Atkins Dear staff, family, and community: I write this note in the midst of Kindness Week in our schools. For instance, the superheroes at the right wore capes and masks to remind us that we all have the power to be kind. Does it get any cuter? Love and kindness are key to our schools. Kindness is always available to us, but it is also hard to carry out. Many on our staff were reminded of this truth by Dr. Luvelle Brown, a native son who is now Superintendent in Ithaca Public Schools in New York. He reminded ...
