Dear Bolles Community:
Like so many people around the country have been feeling during the past week, The Bolles School community is horrified by the tragic death of George Floyd and other victims of systemic racism. As a school family, we are not only suffering and grieving but also seeking in earnest ways we can influence real change and stand together for the humanity of all people – at Bolles, in the United States and around the world. In troubling times, we must unite and live out our very important mission at The Bolles School: Pursuing excellence through courage, integrity and compassion.
Today, we ask everyone in our Bolles family to live out courage by engaging in meaningful conversations about race and racism; to demonstrate integrity by showing intolerance for hate and injustice; and to exude compassion by listening, understanding and embracing peace. The Bolles community is deeply committed to this mission and equity for all people.
Tyler J. Hodges
President and Head of School, The Bolles School
