A Message and Invitation for NSA Alumni from Head of School Debbie Russell

Dear NSA Alumni,
Last week, I wrote an email to our NSA parents, students, faculty and staff expressing our heartfelt concern over the death of George Floyd, the injustice he experienced and the lack of progress our society has made as it relates to social justice and equality for all. In that letter, we shared that NSA would resolve to further our commitment to improve our school, our community and our world through further education and action so every individual, regardless of the color of their skin or differences, feels safe, respected, valued and connected to those around them. 

During this time, we have remained connected to students, parents, trustees, alumni, faculty and staff to understand their unique perspectives as we work together to continue to move forward. For an update on our progress and an opportunity to join the conversation as well as to offer additional insights as to how we can best advance this critical work, please join us for the next virtual meeting of our Equity and Inclusion Committee at one of the times below: 

If you are not able to join the conversation during the times above and would like to share your thoughts, please email Maggie Prince, director of admissions and chair of the Equity and Inclusion Committee, at mprince@nsacademy.org. Thank you in advance for your insight and involvement. It is important that we open the dialogue, have conversations and listen in order to move forward in a positive manner for justice and human dignity for all.

All my best,

Debbie Russell
Head of School
