To the members of our Depew Family,

As a close knit school-community, we hold the families and friends of those lost in yesterday’s tragic events in Buffalo in our thoughts and prayers. The hatred and violence that culminated in these acts have no place in our society. As an educational institution, we are committed to providing a safe and inclusive environment that fosters open hearts and minds. This commitment will be met through a concerted effort on the part of our entire school community. 

Our school administrators and student support personnel will partner with the rest of our staff to support any students or families in need of assistance in processing these tragic events. Below is a link to a resource from the National Association of School Psychologists that may be helpful in supporting our children…

We stand in unity with all of Western New York.
