South County Pyramid

Dear Families, 

The South County Pyramid Principals (Halley ES, Laurel Hill ES, Newington Forest ES, Silverbrook ES, South County MS, South County HS) are hosting a Virtual Listening Forum on Racial Equity on Wednesday, September 9th from 7pm-8pm via Blackboard Collaborate Ultra.

The purpose of this time together is to provide a safe space and platform for our community members to share openly and candidly about the strengths and needs of our community schools as we work to create a welcoming environment that is supportive of all students and families. We are committed to  continue to grow our partnership with you and better address the needs and concerns of our students and families in the South County Pyramid. Join us in taking  our collective first step!

We look forward to this opportunity to listen, learn, and hear from one another.
