School Consolidation Principal Update



November 20, 2020

Dear Graham Families,

Linked below is a letter that I emailed to all families regarding Graham’s consolidation announcement and a few reminders to continue to be mindful that another school community is experiencing a great deal of sadness at this time.

This saddened community will join Graham as students, teachers, staff and families. We want our actions today to pave the way for a successful consolidation process for all. The community of Snow still represents our colleagues, our neighbors, and our friends…please never overlook that fact.

I again appreciate each and every community member, near and far, for using their powerful voices.

Graham and Snow voices matter.

Principal Byrd
