“Dear Parents/Guardians,

As the end of an unprecedented week comes to a close, the Dover Area School District has received some inquiries regarding concerns for student safety and/or possible disruptions in school in response to incidents happening in other schools and/or being reported in the news.

Please be aware that the administration of the Dover Area School District will not tolerate any incidents involving racially charged comments, activities, or hate speech being aimed at students in our schools related to the election or any event.

Every student deserves to feel valued, respected, and safe. Collectively, everyone must be mindful to maintain a safe environment of which all students feel a part. If any student feels threatened, attacked, or mistreated by anyone during the school day, regardless of the cause, they are encouraged to immediately share their concerns with school administrators, guidance counselors, trusted faculty/staff members, or parents/guardians, so situations are addressed promptly and effectively.

Schools are an environment in which all students, faculty, and staff have a right to feel safe, secure, and supported throughout their educational experience. The Dover Area School District remains committed to keeping the district a safe place for all.

Thank you for your continued support.”
